AMONG THE DANDELIONS
In an 1898 issue of "Harper's Weekly."
Williston Fish wrote "I leave to children
exclusively, but only for the life of their
childhood, all and every, the dandelions
of the fields and the daisies thereof, with
the right to play among them freely."
With Mr. Fish, we too, would leave...
The beauty of the butterfly
The lowing of cattle
The coolness of a shade tree
The feather of the baby owl
The morning glories and tulip trees
And honey suckle
And acres of thistles to be picked and blown
We would go for as long as possible and
as far afield as possible among the daises
and the dandelions of the world and we would
see and be seen...as little children.
