Winter Flower for Veronica Green

Here’s a winter bush
that blazons white

and blooms five petals
from pink cups.

It’s pods are hard
clusters of seed

that seem round
basket of loaves.

Its leaf looks a knife
but like a pine’s

tough fur
prickles soft.

Here’s a winter bush
blazoning white.

its bird-sung

or porcelain,

with light.
