DANDELIONS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

You cannot forget if you would those golden kisses all over the cheeks of the meadow, queerly called dandelions.
      - Henry Ward Beecher,
        Star Papers--A Discourse of Flowers

Upon a showery night and still,
  Without a sound of warning,
    A trooper band surprised the hill,
      And held it in the morning.
        We were not waked by bugle notes,
          No cheer our dreams invaded,
            And yet at dawn, their yellow coats
              On the green slopes paraded.
      - Helen Gray Cone, The Dandelions

Dear common flower, that grow'st beside the way,
  Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold,
    First pledge of blithesome May,
      Which children pluck, and, full of pride, uphold,
        High-hearted buccaneers, o'erjoyed that they
          An Eldorado in the grass have found,
            Which not the rich earth's ample round
              May match in wealth, thou art more dear to me
                Than all the prouder summer-blooms may be.
      - James Russell Lowell, To the Dandelion

Young Dandelion
  On a hedge-side
    Said young Dandelion
      Who'll be my bride?
        Said young Dandelion
          With a sweet air,
            I have my eye on
              Miss Daisy fair.
      - Dinah Maria Mulock (used pseudonym Mrs. Craik),
        Young Dandelion
