Sue Leigh Poetry




I cannot make anything

more lovely than these names



also called bird’s eye, rock rue


meadow cranesbill

blue buttons, gipsy, grace of God


salad burnet


travellers’ joy


lady’s slipper or Virgin’s shoe

(might there be one left)


Venus’s looking glass


early purple orchid

known too as Gethsemane


pasque flower


and the purple rampion,

does it grow still on Silbury Hill
