I remember doing this... it put me right back to childhood and hopeful dreams. You captured the moment well in your simple poem.
How typical of scaredy-cat juvenile emotions to trust to plucking a daisy rather than just fronting up with open communication. Sometimes we don't get brave enough even in adulthood!

A lovely 5/7/5 poem for the contest. Perfect picture to remind us of the daisy song of long ago.

Well done and good luck in the contest.
Blessings

favorite love me, love me not memories for most of us

my assumption is Daisy gets double meaning - as flower and name

white text and yellow background match illustration - I would have favored a slightly larger font size and maybe done in bold to increase the contrast for viewers

best wishes in this writing prompt

    Thanks for the review. How do I enlarge the text?
reply by Mark D. R. on 20-Jan-2019
    Go to 'use basic editor' link, located below your entered text. Highlight all, then choose/select, your font type, size, and text style (and color of your text too) and you can change the appearance of your text. My tip: avoid using script font for your verse. Another suggestion: use at least 18 point size type for short-lined verse. You will need to look in preview for longer lined and length text. Give it a try (-; Regardless of choices, be sure that there is a sharp contrast between your text's color and its background.

    Oops, use 'advanced editor' when you are in your preview or edit mode.

Hey there... daisies are so bright and cheerful. I love your poem about them.. they are such a showy and bright flower... they brighten up any spot where they are planted. Good job on this 5-7-5 and good luck in the competition.

A very well-written 5-7-5 poem. For young hearts it seems to be the little flower that holds all the answers to our question if he loves us or not. The answer is not always what we like it to be.

Every syllable of this cute 5-7-5 is effectively used. Oh, yes, this takes me
waaay to those starry-eyes days of youth--of plucking petals and grabbing up
those wishbones!

A nostalgic read that fits for any age. It is simple and innocent matching our hopes of wondering whether our crush loved us. The first line also does a good job of showing a small plead/hope as the speaker searches for answers. Great job and good luck in the contest! :)
