The Australian poet Clive Sansom wrote a poem entitled “Spring Yellow.” Of course, yellow is the color of many spring beauties such as forsythia, daffodils, celandine poppies and dandelions.
William Wordsworth, who is so famous for his poems about daffodils, has also celebrated the celandine poppy. He wrote:
Primroses will have their glory
And long as there are violets,
They will have their place in story:
There’s a flower that shall be mine
‘Tis the little celandine.
