the lowly dandelion


the lowly dandelion,
a weed on your lawn,
so you get rid of it
before it is picked
by an innocent child
for her hardworking teacher
or her loving mother.

the lowly dandelion
a weed on your lawn,
so you get rid of it
before the bees feast
on its sweetness,
or before your wife feeds you
dandelion salad or soup!

the lowly dandelion,
a weed on your lawn,
so you get rid of it
never knowing its resilience
for it's forever present in spring
just like any lowly thing.
