Some mindless lowlife seemed to think it fun
to strip the budding daffodils from
the grassed corner of the road, every last stem,
and scatter them across the grass to die,
depriving passers-by of springtime joy.
I salvaged what I could and now
they stand in joyful golden glory
in a blue vase in my living room.

    I totally despair of these mindless idiots. At least you get some joy Libby.

      I was so angry and sad about this. The bare clumps of leaves remind me every time I walk past to visit our local shops. Fortunately there are some on the other side of the road that have been left alone – so far!

    Mindless instead of mindful.
    At least you saved some.

    Could it have been a hungry animal?

    Argh. I hate when people cut my flowers and carry them away. I can’t imagine how I’d feel if they just vandalized them.
