by Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)

Oh, burdock, and you other dock
Language: English 
Oh, burdock, and you other dock,
That have ground coffee for your seeds,
And lovely long thin daisies, dear -- 
She said that you were weeds!
She said, "Oh, what a fine bouquet!"
But afterwards I heard her say,
"She's always dragging in those weeds."
