‘Dandelion’ by Robert MacFarlane
“Dazzle me, little sun-of-the-grass!
And spin me, tiny time-machine!
(Tick-tock, sun clock, thistle & dock)
Now no longer known as Dent-de-Lion, Lion’s Tooth, Windblow,
(Tick-tock, sun clock, nettle & dock)
Evening Glow, Milkwitch or Parachute, so
Let new names take and root, thrive and grow
(Tick-tock, sun clock, rattle & dock)”
