Am graceful in the spring;

I lend the colour to your eyes;
My praises poets sing.

My name means “star”; my flowers bright;
Are shaggy as a lion;
Like daisy and chrysanthemum;
My blossoms thrive in gentle sun;
I am the cheerful kind.

Spicy scents I hold;

I smile to see my merry sun;
I’m decked in shades of gold.

When blooms in linen chests were laid;
Then I was always used.

Sophisticated colour scheme;
My spots and streaks may sometimes seem;
Amazingly quixotic.

My blooms are fine and small;
My name’s a colour, loved by most;
Of tiny blooms I am the toast;
My scent enchanting all.

I’m sometimes called a poppy;
But my name is hard to spell;
I wear a pointed hood of green;
To hide my orange petals’ sheen;
Yet I am bold as well.
