Time for the Garden

by Lesley Burt, edited by Hannah Clarke

place on a sunlit stone pedestal

bang in the middle of lawns clipped to velvet

 

bewitch with scents of Belle de Crecy

dazzle with poppies, hollyhocks, dahlias

 

soothe with bees and birdsong surround

with warm walls against the winds

 

imagine time really is this shadow

that dials a series of markers at 2πr

 

nightfall releases it anyway to swallow

another whole day
