Why, Dandelion It Isn’t Easy

Why, dandelion it isn’t easy to lie down
In these weeds and fall in love
We don’t all have to be golden,
Stoic, and upright; shoulders above.

To fall like a seed-head
And break or bend in love
Why, dandelion it isn’t easy
To sing in these high, octaves, love.

But I am the meadow lark
In a countenance you’ve never seen so blue
And it’s all because my heart hungers
Yearns to climb; the mountains pass with you.

Why, dandelion it isn’t easy…
Loving, you!
But I know your heart will climb,
And float with mine too…
In true a chord
All the way to our mountain, shepherd lord.
