She was a dog-rose kind of girl:
elusice,scattery as petals:
scratchy sometimes.tripping you like briars.
She teased theboys
turning this way and that, not yo be tamed
or thaught any more than the wind.
Even in school the word "ought"
had no meaning to sally.
On dull days she'd sit quiet as a mole at her desk
delving in thought.
But whenthe sun called she was gone,running the blue day down
till the warm hedgerows prickled the dusk
and moths flickered out.
Her mother scolded; dad
gave her the hazel-switch,
said her head was sniffed with feathers
and a starling tonque.
But they couldnt take the shine out of her.
even when it rained you felt the sun saved under her skin.
She'd a way of escape laughing at you from the bright end of a tunnel,
leaving you in the dark.
