Ode to Dandelions  

(An excerpt)

You who are shunned

Yet carry the weight of a thousand underdogs

You who are shunned

But stand guard at the mouth of spring

Bold faced

Year after year strong

Like backbone and pillar

A legion of golden soldiers

Bearing jagged teeth

They don’t know you

They don’t understand your white magic

They see your sorcerous ways

And call you witchcraft

Call you unfavorables

They see you change

from sun to moon to star

And the mystery has them dread you

Who are they to order the eradication of you

Who are they to dirty your name

When every property of you

pulses purification...
