Dandelions are like freckles,
Scattered and dotted and clean,
Spots against pale softness,
Blooms golden against the green.
Some do not like their freckles
Others their bright yellow weeds.
Where did this notion come from?
Tell me who planted those seeds?
What flower can sprout any season?
What face is not unique?
I am willing to hear your reason
Though your argument may be weak.
What boring grass yard looks worse
When spread with bright yellow lace?
As salt enhances a meal
So freckles adorn a face.
To me both are sacred,
The speckles and petals alike.
So why not embrace those freckles?
Dandelions, what’s not to like?
