Note: My uncle, Wesley Kirby of
Knoxville, Tennessee, is a professional daylily hybridizer.
This poem was written for him.
cozy, especially to nosies,
And Daisies, they never do tell.
Magnolias are glorious, supreme grandiflorias,
Camellias in winter excel.
Tea Olive - oh my! her smell is divine!
And Iris’s eyes shine so bright --
Old Larkspur’s hue mimics sky’s blue
Then Moonflowers light up the night.
Daffodils’ heads nod as they shed
Tears of joy that Spring’s finally here.
Flowering Peach, Quince, and Plum -
Your time will come!
And Petunia, you’re next, never fear!
My friends the Flowers fill all my hours
Their beauty makes my head giddy.
But tho’ I love short and tall,
My favorite of all
Is the outstanding, magnificent Daylily.
