that goodness
thrives and multiplies
like weeds.


Before the first flake falls
the dried wild  flower
shares a flurry of beauty.


Even weeds have their part to play
in the great display of spring.


Until the crops have given their full yield
you may rest in the high weeds with the moon flower.
When it is time to till again you will carry the full weight of a man and his dreams.

Queen Anne

Delicate, lacey queen
who stands shoulder to shoulder with the commoners and weeds,
gracing flowerbed, roadside and meadow.
