I Pick Dandelions




I pick dandelions

In the early spring

When I think of you

"She loves me . . . "


I cut the rose blooms

In the summer morn

And I am pricked

By the remembrance of you


I walk in the autumn golds

As I shuffle with the agony

Of the memory

Yes I do


Now in my winter's demise

I wrap the cloth of your smile

Around the cold heart's desire

That I once had for you


There will be no dandelions

This spring

No roses this summer

No leaves with autumn's colors

Without the smile of you

            Doubt it Swing - the piggies will eat as many leaves as they can! You can have the yellow flowers if that's any use?! lol. Or you mean loan out the piggies to eat the leaves?
