Saying farewell forever

The dead letter

by Sergeant Floyd

Rose hip is the fruit of the rose.
Cedars stand to attention
and march in drifts of snow.
A dandelions fluff carries a wish
albeit circumferentially
of a summers love.

Rock becomes sand.
Ferns combust as coal.
Some edible seeds are planted
not digested
and secreted gardens grow.

The difference is loam and sun.
The difference is heather in the heath.
The difference is hill-top and hill farming.
The difference is all except my bonny maid
left a forwarding address.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
