She garlands the roadside

with her cheerful blue face,

but she is a girl who

thrives in only one place.

No, she’s not domestic–

she is not at all tame;

en bouquet or en vase

she just isn’t the same.

So don’t pick her or pluck her–

you must let her be.

She’s not yours or mine,

she’s the roadside’s Chicory.
