ROBERT KERRICK – TO DAFFODILS


Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attain'd his noon.
Stay, stay,
Until the hasting day
Has run
But to the even-song;
And, having pray'd together, we
Will go with you along.
We have short time to stay, as you.
We have as short a spring;
As quick a growth to meet decay,
As you, or anything.
We die
As your hours do, and dry
Away,
Like to the summer's rain;
Or as the pearls of morning's dew,
Ne'er to be found again

In Herrick perspective, those Flowers are the metaphor of the shortness of men’s life. In line with that, daffodils convey sadness and melancholy. This poem can be connected to SEIZE THE DAY (carpe diem) by Orazio, the latin author; because It urges the man to live quietly and enjoy life.
