Good evening, my name is Lilyan Thomason. I am the Poetess Laureate of Balwyniti. May I join your table? Do you have any poems in need of being composed?

Lily [-2+1+0+(8*5)+3=42]

*Lilyan smiles and sits down in an empty seat. She then takes out her pen and paper and proceeds to write the dandelion poem. Once satisfied, she gives it to Dragonfly.*

Here you go...


Soft and in puff
Make my wish come true
Pale stalks, cotton light
Float out,
Dream carriers finding new soil
Where they can take root
And grow-- fantasy fed--
Into tall beauties
Of childish delights
Until destroyed
By jaded adults too
Cynical to believe
In the simple promise of
A Dandelion.

I hope you like it. I'm not sure about the last 5 lines though, they could either be kept or tossed---your pick.
