With the word “only” you belittle
whatever you described before.
Whether bright, brimming or brittle,
“only” implies there could be more.
Modesty puts to shame, however,
all arrogance and pride to shine.
Vanity does only sever
brains from body and decline.
Daisies are what they intend:
delicate flowers, small but bright.
And the message that they send:
values are precious, not your height.
