Poetry Jam 2-12-14 "Dandylions"






There once was a cute little flower
That made some folks really sour
Claiming it's a "weed"
The Dandylion agreed
Saying "There's more of me by the hour!"


Thanks and a tip of a petal to Alan
for this weeks Poetry Jam
And for heavens sake have a great day!
Cheers!

You captured it perfectly. My lawn would also agree.

Gabriella said...

Spreading by the hour, that's a funny and peaceful way of answering an 'insult'.

Mary said...

They definitely DO spread by the hour with their parachute seeds. Smiles.

Sandee said...

Some weeds are pretty and this one is. I like this one a lot.

Have a fabulous day. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

Wendy Bourke said...

A very funny limerick. It brought a smile - probably because my days of pulling dandelions are fini.

Brian Miller said...

The spread everywhere and make barren places beautiful. - to some. Great poem. Well done.

Robyn Greenhouse said...

I guess I'm guilty of helping spread that weed by making all those wishes!

Dana said...

Absolutely perfect! They certainly do spread. ☺ Regardless, I think they're pretty.

Celia said...

Great rhyme, kind of like their buttery faces.

Susan Lindquist said...

LOL! Yup... persistent little blooms that are wickedly prolific!

Peggy said...

LOL I like to imagine those little yellow flowers popping up like crazy. We do not have too many of them here so I was not aware they could take over!

messymimi said...

They and the crabgrass do have it in common to spread fast! `Was it Winnie the Pooh that said weeds are flowers once you get to know them?
