નાર્સિસસ / ડૅફોડીલ ફૂલછોડ
પુનર્જન્મ અને નવી શરૂઆતનું પ્રતીક છે,
ડૅફોડીલ ફૂલછોડ વસંત નો પર્યાય છે.
તેમના બોટનિક નામ નાર્સિસસ છે,
ડૅફોડીલને ક્યારેક jonquils કહેવામાં આવે છે
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze
