The dandelion may be a weed
but it’s a very lovely one
With fronds all bright and yellow
reflecting summer sun
So I’m glad I’m not a gardener
for I’d encourage them to grow
Because I am quite fond of yellow
as those who read my poems know
Yes, I admire the dandelion
as to the future with a sign
It reseeds itself from yellow
With a flower that tells the time

    Interesting plant, the dandelion. Its name is a corruption of the French dent de lion, meaning lion’s teeth, reflecting the jagged shape of the leaves. Its French name is ‘pissenlit’, literally urinate in bed.
    A hardy little fellow, it has mastered every survival skill, except the ability to grow in neat rows!
