"The Lily and the Dandylion"

dandylion

 


At first I did not notice it
but slowly it grew stronger.
The motion of the flower
compelled my eyes to look.
It spoke to me,
whispering lightly,
stroking my cheek,
breathing its sweet scent upon my brow.
I shuddered with anticipation
but sooner pulled away.
Flowers
lay strewn before mine eyes.
Nothing left for me to do
but choose a favorite blossom.
Bewilderment.
Why can I not choose
between the Lily and the Danylion?
The Lily is more handsome;
'tis beautiful, breathtaking;
yet the Dandylion has caught mine eye.
I cannot pry myself
from the simplicity of this weed
'Tis just like me;
common and well known,
but does it know itself?
If the Danylion were a Lily,
would it choose a Lily or a Dandylion?
