Flower Poems

Alli, Mellie, Moll and me

    Walked in a field of green.

Then Alli stopped and yelled: “Look here!”

    At something that he’d seen.


“It’s only dandelions,” said Moll –

    “They’re just a common weed.”

And we all looked at them and laughed

    And most of us agreed.


But Alli said: “They’re beautiful!

    Look at their golden heads –

And, see, they are not common weeds

    Except in Mum’s flower bed.”


“Their pretty heads are brilliant!”

    These words we heard him say,

And: “I’m going to pick a golden bunch

    For Mum for Mother’s Day.”


And so he picked a great big bunch.

    His sisters laughed and teased

But Mum accepted them with love

    And her face showed she was pleased.
