Ode to the thistle
What I want is for squadrons of bees to come visit me and take my pollen off to distant fields.
I want soft clay / loam soil to dig my roots deep into, to grow big and strong and to make a great pong so the children and old ladies will come sniff me.
I want to grow up into the sky and to see birds fly by.
I want cousins and aunts to admire the plants and in autumn to pick me and dry me.
Till in spring I’ll grow more and next summer I’ll be about three times bigger than that flippin’ Tulip who thinks he’s the bees knees.
