dandelion wine

yellow flower yellow flower
yellow yellow yellow

sit on the ground, look all around
see the mini suns, pick the little flower
feel the tiny power

this time of year, in some freeway medians
and yards, and places
the yellow of dandelions
beats out the green of grass

put your nose to the yellow rose
the dandelion sun, the petals
stabbing soft yellow
see all the small black bugs in the sun

a bag of flowers, a bag of yellow heads
take them home, make a flower tea
add the sugar, steep in boiling
add some yeast
make sweet wine
drink it and feel fine
from the dandelion

in that yellow liquid
in that living yellow
you will find the odor
and its cousin, memory,
of simple spring
