I found these cute little yellow flowers growing on the end of an ugly weed, along our sidewalk. I guess when you allow the weeds to grow, you realize that even the ugly weeds have their own prettiness.

Watermelon Time

Now watermelon time is here.
And when the day
Is warm and clear,
Our uncle thumps
The green balloon
And says it's ripe

And very soon
A splash of pink
Comes into view.
We know exactly
What to do.
We take a bit.

We take a bite.
We eat and eat
And taste the summer,
Pink and sweet.
