Weather-beaten daffodils
gathered from the roadside
smiling brightly from their vase.

They lift my spirits despite
a head-cold sapping my energy.

Romany Caravan

Trundling down the road comes
a barrel-shaped Romany Caravan,
drawn by a horse with its gentle clip-clopping,
holding up the traffic
but no-one really minding
as cars slowly pass, occupants smiling.
