Flowers, A poem by Julia

Here is another poem from Julia's poetry blitz the other day....she needs some fact checking, but I love the sentiment at the end!

Tulips are pretty, daisies are nice,
Oats and barley attract field mice,
Roses smell very good,
That grow in tall grass and attract cobras with hoods.
Magnolia flowers, they will grow
in tall, tall, grass or inch-deep snow.
And lovely mums, they will stay
From early April to the end of May.
But my favorite does not include roses,
Or flowers that have to be watered with hoses.
I think that I like daffodils because
They remind me of us.
