Grubbed up,
The iron strap fence
Tangles up weeds at the bottom of the garden,
Essential farm field boundary,
Survivor of
World War Two Dig for Victory scrap metal drives,
Thistle and bindweed, wild
Blackberry climbing frame,
Curled protecting arms
Around nettles and dock,
And a bright red ladybird beetle saying
Here I’m safe,
Here I’m known,
Here in these twisted arms
I have a home.
