A Simple Weed's Worth


The Echo of What Remains Collected Poems of Wanda Lea Brayton






Courage hovers;
dandelion's lace is soaring,
a casual embrace of golden dreams.

Endurance is rewarded by songs from soil,           
a lucid ovation from wind.

Be bold and bright,
be a beautiful child
who understands this simple weed's worth
in a world filled with complicated hybrids.
