Rosebay Willowherb

Pretty visitor
I tried to bring you here
With no success.

Then in purple haze
I couldn’t believe.
There you were,
Near Vatersay,
Glowing.

And alone in Northbay
Happily waving in the wind.

I knew you first
From city building sites.

Light as the wind you came
Brightening the travellers journey
Along the railway tracks,

But then we waited long,
For muddy wheels on giant trucks
And blowsy, blazing Fireweed.
