The Dandelion

Dandelions blooming in Bonny Dundee by Bill Rennie

Oh what a magnificent vision
While walking through Dundee
The first flowers of Spring are there for all tae see
But their vibrant yellow belies their menace
As gardeners will attest this premise
The tap root like a long carroty slug
Will not yield to being dug
So nocturnal enuresis will be with us
Perchance forever more
Until we find a way
To banish them fae oor door
But love or hate the dandelion
I think we’d all agree
That their heralding of spring is a braw sight tae see
