Review of Poem To Arthur Edmonds by John Gray

Poem To Arthur Edmonds by John Gray (1866 - 1934) was offered by's Poem-A-Day on March 30, 2013.  The poem takes the form on an indefinable sonnet with an interesting rhyme scheme. The first two stanzas of 4 lines each use daisies as a metaphor for something, perhaps renewal, perhaps myth--it is not entirely clear.  The final 6-line stanza uses the appreciation of sparrows as an admonition to appreciate the simple things in life (?).
