Dandelions

Dandelions

A Poem by emptyinkwell
"

The most underrated and under-appreciated wildflower by far.

"
Not far away in a lawn somewhere
Over the green grass are specks of yellow and white
In a never-ending war against the gardener -
Living, though wanted for dead.
Emerging victorious,
Dandelions with full manes dance arrogantly in the wind.
Not loved. Not admired. Not valued.
Among a wilting bed of roses
Dandelions continue to prosper.
