Woolly Lambs Ears
My name is "Woolly Lambs Ears"-I bloom in the garden in June
My leaves are soft and silvery grey, just like the dreamy moon.
But I do love the summer sun and I stand so straight and high
Just like a silver candle stick reaching to the sky.
The children love to pluck my leaves and rub them on their cheek
My leaves stick out just like the ears of lambs so mild and meek.
The honey bees they also love my tiny purple flowers
They hover 'round me all the day throughout the summer hours.
So if you see me in the garden standing straight and tall
Be sure to rub one of my leaves-I wouldn't mind at all!
For as you see I like to be all soft and warm and mild
I am as friendly as can be to every little child.
