celandine doggerel


the lesser celandine, closing up in the evening sun









There is a flower, the lesser celandine
That shrinks, like many more, from cold and rain
And, the first moment that the sun may shine
Bright as the sun himself, 'tis out again

by Uncle Max, with some assistance from WW

(did WW really get away with such trite verse?)
