Poem on Daffolils (and Other Flowers), by e.e. cummings

 image from Bronx Botannical Gardens

                         in time of daffodils (who know 
                         the goal of living is to grow) 
                         forgetting why, remember how

                         in time of lilacs who proclaim 
                         the aim of waking is to dream, 
                         remember so (forgetting seem) 

                         in time of roses (who amaze 
                         our now and here with paradise) 
                         forgetting if, remember yes 

                         in time of all sweet things beyond 
                         whatever mind may comprehend, 
                         remember seek (forgetting find) 

                         and in a mystery to be 
                         (when time from time shall set us free) 
                         forgetting me, remember me.
