The Little Dandelion by Lula Lowe Weeden
The dandelion stares
In the yellow sunlight.
How very still it is!
When it is old and grey,
I blow its white hair away,
And leave it with a bald head.
The african-american poet Lula Lowe Weeden started writing poems as a child to immediate success. Her poems are intricate and direct.

“Robin Red Breast”
Little Robin red breast,
I hear you sing your song.
I would love to have you put it into my little cage,
Into my little mouth.
Down at the hall at midnight sometimes,
You hear them singing rhymes.
These girls are dancing with boys.
They are too big for toys.
