Those .... weeds. Aaarrghh! Great, witty poem, Andrea. I love this Chastushka form. It shows me that Russians have a sharp sense of humor, which is never really shown to Americans. Love this poem. So funny, still laughing. Love and peace to you.

AH, so it is a conspiracy of weedy characters. I usually tell the neighbors when they ask...What! Pull them out, I just planted them.

Ah, the ever misunderstood dandelion! Me, I don't fully understand though why some hate it? But yup, I really enjoyed how you gave that particular voice to the dandelion, haha, its kind of sweet revenge ;)

The poem reminded me of the Rolling Stones song "Dandelion". That dates me I guess. Enjoyable work here - gardening can be fun at times. Also, did you get your poetry out to me? I will send my latest chapbook once I receive your fine work in the mail. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

I love dandelions and dandelion tea. They are actually very tasty in salads and keep down bloat. Nevertheless, what a cute poem.

Dandelions are quite beautiful in their way. This is why I never disturb them. I am also a big liar and lazy. A sure win. Love, daver

What a treat your page is this morning. First a poem about Autumn, and now one on my favorite flower. I love it. You can't kill the dandelion. It is wild and free and does what it wants.

So the weeds are stalking the flowers, drawn by their beauty and their scent.
