Dandelions

A weed to hoe, chop, and pull; it makes little difference, there on a roll.

No need to look very hard for this pest; it grows in the spring with all rest.

Good to eat in many ways; do not pick where the spray meets the hay.

Good as greens for the soul; eat only a very small bowl full.

A strong wine that is a treat; strong enough clean your dirty feet.

An early medicine for many ailments; warts, kidney and stomach disorder, keeps you from derailment.

Ground the roots for a coffee to brew; keeps you through the night-time too.

Make syrup and jelly too; gives you cause to say, “How do you do.”

-Richard Milleville
