Little White Flowers

Little white flowers, 

Though some may call them weeds.

All over my yard,

And they don’t seem to leave.  

A white clover is what they are named,

Or sometimes a dutch one. 

So much land they have claimed,

And the patches keep growing larger.  

Beautiful perennials in meadows and fields of grass. 

From spring to fall,

The other weeds they will outlast. 

Trifolium repens is their long name,

And they are native to Europe, Asia, and the U.S.

These flowers may be small but nevertheless,

They are the prettiest weeds and for sure the best.
