picking dandelion greens…

aunt bea
has a patch
of grass
in the front
of her home
on
saturdays
i go over
to her house
and
tend to the lawn
last week
i went
to spray
the dandelions
as
i started
aunt bea
said
you never did like
dandelions
i recall when mom
would send you
and
your cousin tommy
out to the fields
to pick
dandelion greens
for
dinner
it was never one
of
your favorite chores
but
you two found
some reprieve
in the task
since there were
wild strawberries
growing in the field
and
for some reason
you were never
too hungry
after returning home
seems
like doing
an unpleasant task
can have some
hidden rewards
now
if only
the congress
could figure that out
