Her Roots - Poem by June Walker

are wild heather
to boggy soil,
wringing out usable minerals
from forsaken ground,
specialised for the task,
gripping tightly,
unlikely to be pulled up by man,
or weather.
Craggy stems,
harsh curly head of hair-
still, she bears small green leaves
in spring- and in Autumn-
a magnificent purple blaze.
