Allium Paradoxum

Maybe the Few Flowered Leek is a symbol
For the torture of the Welsh woodlands
By the Tree Sellers.

In Wales, a desert perpetrated
Mud for dust, mud for sand
Sawdust for the rain which does not fall
Leafless and Bible bland

The Few Flowered Leek reaches
Out, delicate
Like Saint Joan
In the path of lorries
But also on the path of few flowered things
On the path of few things
It is best - it is clear
Isn't it?
