I bring you flowers from the garden
Snowdrops and posied primroses,
Shy cyclamen from underneath the rose tree
Paper plum blossom
The blue brilliance of forget-me-nots
Faces of acquilegia
Your wig wammed sweet peas and
Mother goethes white stars.
Sprays of white tree roses
The scented gold from outside your window
Stout ever forgiving valerian and orange day lilies
And playful catnip and lavender.
And the summer plantings of
Cosmos, antirrhinum, zinnias ,dahlias
And giant daisies and lemon balm.
Tall Japanese and omens
Fennel heads from the triangled patch
Seed pods and haws and
The ivy that cements our stones
I bring myself each week.
Home always come to you
