Here are 2 poems about dandelions and dandelion seed pods.
"Pretty seeds, what makes you fly,
Now here, now there, now low, now high?"
"’Tis the wind lifts me!
‘Tis the wind drifts me
Tosses me in merry play,
Here and there and every way."
-Laura E. Richards
"Pretty little Goldilocks, shining in the sun,
Pray, what will become of you when the summer’s done ?"
"Then I’ll be old Silverhead; for, as I grow old,
All my shining hair will be white instead of gold.
"And where rests a silver hair that has blown from me,
Other little Goldilocks in the Spring you’ll see!
"Goldilocks to Silverhead, Silverhead to gold,
So the change is going on every year, I’m told."
From: In the child’s world: morning talks and stories for kindergartens, primary schools and homes (1893)
