THE DANDELION

O DANDELION, YELLOW AS GOLD,
WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY?
I JUST WAIT HERE
IN THE TALL, GREEN GRASS,
TIL THE CHILDREN COME TO PLAY.

O DANDELION, YELLOW AS GOLD,
WHAT DO YOU DO ALL NIGHT?
I WAIT AND WAIT
TIL THE COOL DEW FALLS,
AND MY HAIR GROWS LONG AND WHITE.

AND WHAT DO YOU DO
WHEN YOUR HAIR IS WHITE
AND THE CHILDREN COME TO PLAY?
THEY TAKE ME UP
IN THEIR DIMPLED HANDS,
AND BLOW MY HAIR AWAY.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; GRAND RAPIDS
