Dandelion, dandelion yellow as gold

Who knows where the following lines come from? I think they date from quite a long way back.

Dandelion, dandelion yellow as gold
What do you do all day?
I wait and wait in the tall green grass
Until the children come out to play......

O DANDELION

O Dandelion, yellow as gold, what do you do all day?
"I just wait here in the tall, green grass, 'till the children come to play."

O Dandelion, yellow as gold, what do you do all night?
"I wait and wait, while the cool dew falls, and my hair grows long and white."

And what do you do when your hair grows white, and the children come to play?
"They take me in their dimpled hands, and blow my hair away!"
