brown, dry, rooted on chalk ridge
where skylarks swoop low.
‘Teasel’ is a plant that just compels one to write a poem about it! I love the last line.

Quite! The word ‘teasel’ is such fun, just as the sight of teasels always makes me smile 🙂 Skylarks are so cute. They make me smile, too.
Teasels and skylarks ~ a wonderful combination!
It was a wonderful combination. The skylarks were very busy, tuneful, and happy, darting everywhere!
Teasels are some of my favourites – we have a whole field of them nearby and they look beautiful.
Oh, how wonderful. I would love to see a whole field of them. The birds must be very happy 🙂
