TO A DAISY
By Alice Meynell (1847-1922)

Slight as thou art, thou art enough to hide
Like all created things, secrets from me,
And stand a barrier to eternity,
And I, how can I praise thee well and wide

From where I dwell Ė upon the hither side?
Thou little veil for so great mystery,
When shall I penetrate all things and thee,
And then look back? For this I must abide,

Till thou shalt grow and fold and be unfurled
Literally between me and the world.
Then shall I drink from in beneath a spring,

And from a poetís side shall read his book.
O daisy mine, what will it be to look
From Godís side even of such a simple thing?
