Swan River Daisy
Sophie Marshall, Grade 6
Lavender petals dancing in the crisp morning air
Swaying elegantly in the delicate breeze
Luscious emerald foliage wraps the petals like a warm hug.
Pastel flora surrounded by bees.
Dainty and picturesque, like an abstract work of art
In shades of lilac, violet and blue
A delicate but adaptable species
An Australian native through and through.
Fragrant fronds cascade like a mauve waterfall
Sprays of flowers shower over slender stems
Exquisite, eye catching, breathtaking
It’s one of our true Australian gems.
