Urban Physic Garden


Wild Strawberry

I hear boys’ phrases
with what tenderness in excess
aren’t we all wiled into this green
perfect, intense, so suddenly gritty
little tendrils shyly play across
flicker into this tiny world
pretty red buttons peak
intensities fragranced huskily
crisp as stamped gold
Peter Philpott
(From Herbarium, a new poetry anthology. Launch and reading 22 July)
