The star-flower, the yellow buds
That bloom, the wish-granting blossoms,
Tap-rooted, northern born and bred, wild.
Lobed, rosette, a prize for the lion's teeth
The paddock's stars, the clock-seeds,
We're running out of time, you'll wilt soon.
Florets, sun rays, wind-walkers, parachutes,
Sweet sun of the land, the stars that grow
In clumps of breathless marathons
Among the breezes. My sweet lion's tooth,
We're running out of time.

Amelia Doherty

My sweet lion’s tooth,
The star-flower, the yellow buds
That bloom, the wish-granting blossoms,
Tap-rooted, northern born and bred, wild.
Lobed, rosette, a prize for the lion’s teeth
The paddock’s stars, the clock-seeds,
We’re running out of time, you’ll wilt soon.
Florets, sun rays, wind-walkers, parachutes,
Sweet sun of the land, the stars that grow
In clumps of breathless marathons
Among the breezes. My sweet lion’s tooth,
We’re running out of time.
