Divination on daisy

In the spring I asked the daisies
If his words were true,
And the clever, clear-eyed daisies
Always knew.
Now the fields are brown and barren,
Bitter autumn blows,
And of all the stupid asters
Not one knows. (Sara Teasdale)

All summer she scattered the daisy leaves;
They only mocked her as they fell.
She said: «The daisy but deceives;
‘He loves me not,’ ‘he loves me well,’
One story no two daisies tell.»
Ah foolish heart, which waits and grieves
Under the daisy’s mocking spell. (Helen Hunt Jackson)

and scatter my fingers, breaking them
so they tear, guessing and letting
corollas of oncoming daisies through May (Vladimir Mayakovsky)

it fell twenty times on «not at all».

as I knew how to love once?

like a daisy, cutting it off! (Federico Garcia Lorca)

Lovers (who isn’t naive, loving?)
Have this custom, observed as a rite,
Of going to the meadows to pick the daisy
To make sure that they are loved, and how.
Each petal has its written answer:
A little, a lot, or passionately,
Or not at all… And their vague torment
Of the final word softens or irritates. (Leon Valade)

Like treasures of silver and gold. (Thomas Campbell)
