MAUD WATSON, FLORIST


bred in a market arch

a struggle

in a city's armpit


that flower

in your time-rough hands

a beautiful girl in a slum alley


all that kindness in your face


and you're right


the times are not what they were

this England's not what it was


flowers shrink in that crumbling vase

dusk creeps in on a cart


and Maud the sun is choking


Maud this island's sinking


and all that swollen sea is


the silent majority


waving
