Adrian Henri: New, Fast, Automatic Daffodils

 

The New, Fast, Automatic Daffodils
(New variation on Wordsworth's "Daffodils")

 

I wandered lonely as
THE NEW, FAST DAFFODIL
INDENT-FULLY AUTOMATIC
that floats on high o'er vales and hills
The Daffodil is generously dimensioned to accommodate four adult passengers
10,000 saw I at a glance
Nodding their new anatomically shaped heads in sprightly dance
Beside the lake beneath the trees
INDENT-in three bright modern colours
red, blue and pigskin
The Daffodil de luxe is equipped with a host of useful accessories
including windscreen wiper and washer with joint control
A Daffodil doubles the enjoyment of touring at home or abroad

in vacant or in penseive mood
