    You once told me
    You wanted to find
    Yourself in the world -
    And I told you to
    First apply within,
    To discover the world
    within you.

    You once told me
    You wanted to save
    The world from all its wars -
    And I told you to
    First save yourself
    From the world,
    And all the wars
    You put yourself

    The fallen white flowers appear
    On moonlit nights, like glittering pearls
    Scattered across the ground so white
    Its heady wet fragrance to bring out
     Nostalgic thoughts of lovely times

    There's many a lonesome daisy where never a child can be,
    And many a lone little brooklet is dancing away to the sea;
    Yet children must stay in the city with only dull walls in view,
    As if there were never a brooklet and never a daisy grew!

    –Annette Wynne
