in Greenhead Park, muddy boots
bounding through leaves.
Sun glints on Greenhead
drakes, who float on silver pond
and wait for spring.
Sun glows through oak trees,
slow without warmth, raining gold
and bronze at dusk.

How many weeds here? Dandelion, bramble, bindweed, goose
grass, couch grass and the elephant in the garden... ground elder!
