Large genus of flowering plants at random
Tiny blossoms each fine, known as floret
make composite flower-head, no secret.
Scientific name goes as Taraxacum.
From root to flower, each part edible
Vitamins, minerals enriched the plant,
Also, soluble fiber and antioxidant.
Use medicinal values being sensible.
Bright yellow blooms show happiness and glee
Sharp spiky leaves of dandelion
resemble a bit as teeth of a lion.
To leave garden, stubborn weeds never agree.
