Poem: Dandelions

Kids say the most abstract, yet wonderful things. My boss's daughter, who is ten years old, told him over breakfast that if she was president she would make a law that dandelions would be flowers instead of weeds. How could that not be a poem?!

Dandelions

Through ten year old eyes
Truths are revised
Laws will be changed
Ideas re-arranged
Dandelion grown
Weeds no more known
As flowers she sees
Perception’s degrees

Kids do say some odd things. :P

I didn't know it was considered a weed.

Yep, it is a weed. Oh, and kids say wonderful things in their innocence that lead to so many great ideas if you follow along with them.

What a great kid! That's a wonderful poem, Scott. I have felt this way about dandelions all my life.
