by Hilda Conkling

Marigold, marigold,
Where are you going?
Have you a plan? Can you not tell me?
I should like to know!
There are lots of places to wander,
There is a brook needing a visitor,
A robin needing a friend.
You must not be lonely:
You belong to nature as I do!
You have a frank little way of staring . . .
I am curious about you!
The blue sky hangs over you and me . . .
The sun's rays fall on us both . . .
Why not be happy
On this wonderful earth?
Marigold, answer!
I tell you all my thoughts
But you have not said a word!
(It was then she said softly
"I have many friends,
But you are my best!"
