A bright flash of skirts
Differing shades of yellow
I’m not sure how I remembered the phrase “Daffy-down-dilly” – (it must have been hiding in the depths of my childhood memories for more decades than I care to think about) – but once recalled, it was perfect, at five syllables, for a line in my haiku!
post script: Daffy-down-dilly was first mentioned in a novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1843.
The poem which I remember, is as follows:
Has come to town
With a yellow petticoat
And a pretty green gown
