Mahailey and the Dandelions
From an original oil by John Blake Bergers

"...and from under the dead weeds and wisps of dried bluestem, the dandelions thrust up their clean, bright faces; the acrid smell made him think of Mahailey, who had probably been out this very morning, gauging the sod with her broken butcher-knife and stuffing dandelion greens into her apron. She always went for greens with an air of secrecy, very early, and sneaked along the roadsides stooping close to the ground as if the dandelions were wild things and had to be caught sleeping."
Inspired by Willa Cather's One of Ours
