*Don Herold's original was a longer piece of prose but it has become a poem, been much plagiarized and attributed to all sorts of authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Nadine Stair and Brother Jeremiah. The plagiarism trail can be traced back to the original at http://www.benjaminrossen.com/frameset_daisies.htm
