The Parks and Gardens Committee
voted to scatter their dreams
along the grass verges of the A224.
No-one noticed the kick-start of life.
Cars swished through the dark tunnel
of winter, their drivers unaware of the gift.
Emerging, dormouse-eyed, they are
surprised by pools of daffodil gold;
a nodding acquaintance.
The Committee moves to another agenda.
The gift continues its sunburst fanfare
