Paardenbloem - Dandelion - Taraxacum officinale



Dandelion

Photobucket

There's a dandy little fellow
Who dresses all in yellow--
In yellow with an overcoat of green;
With his hair all crisp and curly,
In the springtime, bright and early,
A tripping o'er the meadow he is seen.

Photobucket

Through all the bright June weather,
Like a jolly little tramp,
He wanders o'er the hillside, down the road;
Around his yellow feather
The gypsy fireflies camp;
His companions are the woodlark and the toad.

Photobucket

But at last this little fellow
Doffs his dandy coat of yellow,
And very feebly totters o'er the green;
For he very old is growing,
And with hair all white and flowing,
A nodding in the sunlight he is seen.

Photobucket

The little winds of morning
Come a flying through the grass,
And clap their hands around him in their glee;
They shake him without warning--
His wig falls off, alas!
And a little bald-head dandy now is he.

  1. Ik zit met ingehouden adem te kijken Anna, bang om al dit moois te verstoren! Schitterende serie, mooie soft focus op de delecate pluisjes!

  2. een hemels prentje om te zien anna,
    gek hé dat het zaadje nooit de bloem ziet....

    jammer ook, de paardenbloem een van mijn favorietjes, al was het maar om die witte pluizebollekes in de wei : -)
