Winter Garden


The garden’s now a curious place 

Odd plants thrive in lonely splendour

Winter cabbage's french white lattice 

Rimmed in brightest brilliant green

Counterpoint beside snow peppered 

Filigree on adjacent stark dry stalks

Autumn corn brittle grey long dead

Compost blankets strawberry plants 

Whose leaves peek through shyly

With spring promise of summer fruit

Brown birds glean in frenetic dances

Fat squirrel’s leavings there by chance
