Dandelion Down by J.R.Poulter 08

A little bit of feather fluff

Stood up on its tippy toes

To see the way the wild wind blows.

It stretched so high, a little puff

And the dandelion down

Was blown around

Wherever the wind chose!

xx–xx–xx–xx–xx

It danced upon its tiny feet

Across the flowers beds and street.

It twirled and whirled!

Whole worlds unfurled,

Fern fronds and rosebuds

All uncurled!

xx–xx–xx–xx–xx

It danced until the arms of earth

Reached for the child that it gave birth.

Dandelion seed swirled softly down

To cuddle deep into the ground.

When she awoke from winter sleep

She laughed in the sun then

Once again,

She longed to leap!

    I read this to two of my grandchildren that live here in town. The little one is 2 and the older one is 10. The 10 year old LOVES books and has a great imagination. She absolutely loved this and drew her own pictures to show her 2 year old sister to ‘explain’ about dandelions. Great for the imagination!
