Lawn Au Naturel
©2012 Mollie Pearce McKibbon
Dandelion salad, dandelion wine,
Don’t you wish your lawn was mine?
Dandelion fuzz balls standing tall,
How very sad that you have none at all.
Dandelion wishes, dandelion schemes,
Buttercup kisses, dandelion dreams.
Please, keep your roses, I’m beguiled
By wild flower bouquets picked by a child.
Spraying and digging may seem wise but
Dandelions are just sunshine in disguise.
