Y is for Yarrow

Tricky and prolific
spreading into artful mounds
Your colors are so varied
more than this small poem
could hope to carry

When first we met
your brilliance shown
bright white and effervescent
Then next to you a cousin or two
shone out in yellow pearl-essence

Around the corner stacked high
and low pink, purple and red
could everywhere be seen
Too many to even try to choose
in fact there were even some green

It came to past that I could
only choose one Yarrow plant
to take home that day
Instead I picked a pack of seeds
went through the line and paid
