                              oh! English pastoral, nature escapes us
                              with flower with flower
                              endure sweet knight,
                              brave blade to crimson
                                              [as crimson is her shining breast]
shall I embroider / the sword,
                              the needle,
                              my life-blood
of thyme with flower,
                                              with flower
                              as he is bee thou sipp’st
                              and I, herself as
                              fragrant thyme
  as crimson is
                                        this emblem drawn to
                              shining breast

                              Remember me,
                              true love of mine

(From Herbarium, a new poetry anthology. Launch and reading 22 July)
