Wendy’s Daisies

Dark haired Anne of Green Gables

Freckles and playfully naughty giggle

Hailed from Prince Edward Island


Easygoing bon vivant friendly nature

Everyone couldn’t help but love you

Your nonchalant laissez-faire demeanour

Often made you look as cute as Pippi Longstocking


You were a friendship magnet

People couldn’t get enough of you

Everyone wanted a piece of your energy

Your exuberant joyful freedom

Hoping a bit of your magic would wear off on them


You never doubted about the true treasures of life

When you talked about the fields of daisies down home

Your eyes teared up with nostalgia


When you did move back for good

It was a cruel jolt to us

We were sad and lost a chip off our heart

But we always did see you

For what you truly were

A captive bird trapped in a cage

It was time to set you free
