Two poems by Adam Warne


that dangle by
in root nook
in Combs Wood
beneath the moss
a most potent
go to fetch
more than the size
have bumble bees
it’s not too late
we’re quick we’ll
over river
to prick fingers

because light thaws
about what hops here
beneath a thorny bough
of a mile’s walk
scattering hedge
and wild garlic covered
parishes on the
outskirts of mist
a blunt oak
rises barley beyond
