Pretty Seedy

I love to see echinacea in the summer, 
when the bees are after the flowers' pollen, 
then later, when goldfinches can be seen 
dining on the seeds. Now, their hosting 
job complete, the stalks have blackened and 
stand out against the snowy ground. 

Tall and slender, they seem just as proud
as they looked in their summer dress.
