The Dandelion, Revisited Again

Donald P. Goodman III

Version 1.0,
When night is darkest, then it is that sun will rise from down behind the earth, where it from winter hides; endure the cold and dark; so saith all the wise, in knowledge that the sun, like all the blushing brides, is merely waiting for the organ's note to peal before its radiant face it shows to waiting eyes, a woman where a girl had been, bright and ideal, and show'ring joy like rain wheree'er her visage lies. And so, from down beneath the ground doth rise the sun, bright, yellow radiance nodding in a weed's disguise; this brightness by the sky and stars can't be outdone; of all creation's lights, it shines second to none.
