White bluebells

White bluebells

White bluebells in a narrow
            strip of land on Holly Hill
Hampstead : and brambles
            with their white buds
tightly packed with life
            holly bushes too
with tiny bullet-like buds
            on the slender stems
and not a single berry
            left by the birds
