Dandelion Dandelion

Oh glorious dandelion

So misunderstood.

Maligned as a weed

Don’t you wish you would

Be valued and treasured,

Encouraged to grow,

To extend your long leaves

Sun gold flowers to show?

Your leaves make good salads,

Green smoothies and juice,

Your flowers bright and yellow,

Sweet to taste; you produce

Vitamins and minerals

So many in abundance.

One day you’ll be treasured,

Recognised for your brilliance.

Old MacDonald had a farm …

vegan nursery rhyme

Old MacDonald had a farm,

E-I-E-I-O

And on that farm he had no animals,

E-I-E-I-O

With a crop field here and a crop field there,

Here a crop, there a crop,

Everywhere a lot of crops.

Old MacDonald had a farm,

And on that farm he grew some peas,

E-I-E-I-O

With snow peas here and chick peas there,

Yellow peas, maple peas,

Lovely green organic peas.

With mung beans here and navy beans there,

Black beans, pinto beans,

Kidney beans and runner beans.

With lettuces here and cabbages there,

Collard greens, spinach leaves,

Kale and chard and mustard greens.

Old MacDonald had a farm,

E-I-E-I-O

And on that farm he grew good food,

E-I-E-I-O

With no animal slaves and no chemicals sprayed,

Healthy veg in healthy soil,

Bees and hedgerows thrived withal.
