Lungwort In April
Lungwort In April

Lament (Part XVI)

Well here we are in this game of two halves – the first half wasn’t too bad
We thought National Poetry Writing Month would just be a passing fad
and hoped we could last a day or so, without breaking into prose
and here we are, over half way, without having to stretch up on our toes
to reach the Olympian heights of rhyme. The photo today is Lungwort,
a low and spotty plant but good in case of scrape or hurt,
it will heal wounds or cure a cough – there’s much more it can do.
It’s often called ‘Soldiers and Sailors’ because its flowers are pink and blue
