The Meadow

From a shaded wood
To the sunlit meadow,
Field guide and check list
Just to make sure we know
Agrimony from columbine,
Corky fruited water dropwort
From Taraxacum officinale -
The simple dandelion.
Are these the lilies of the field
Arrayed in all their splendour
Who neither toil nor spin,
But with Homo sapiens 
Share a maker
Who cares for all?
