Meriden Poet: Elaine MacMullen



So bright and yellow like the summer sun,

Smiling petal-faces on every single one

Atop green stems strong and straight,

they reach up towards heaven's golden gate

Let's take a lesson from this lovely bloom,

as the sight of it chases away any gloom

and gives us a new outlook and a very good reason,

to celebrate the rebirth of this glorious season!

— Elaine MacMullen  Meriden
