Help with a non-vocabulary word
I'm looking for a word I saw in a book to help me in writing a haiku. It's a nonsense word that means (I think) daffodil. It's more than one syllable and begins with "dilly". The book is by Cynthia Riggs and it's part of the Veronica Trumball series; I don't know which one. I did email the author to ask and she responded right away but didn't know the word. She responded in haiku form but interesting - she has too many syllables in the middle line. Ha!
I know I entered it in my log complete with that word, but I can't find it. Can any one help me out? It won't be much of an inspiration to my haiku if I can't find it. Plus today is National Great Poetry Reading Day.
