Gay little dandelion
Gay little dandelion light up the meads
Swings on her slender foot, telleth her beads,
Lists to the Robin's note poured from above,
Wise little dandelion ask not for love.
Pale little dandelion in her white shroud
Neareth the Angel breeze, call from the clouds
Tiny plumes fluttering, make no delay,
Little winged dandelion soareth away.

This website began in 1995 as a personal project, and I have been working
on it full-time without a salary since 2008. Our research has
never had any government or institutional funding, so if you
