I Will Go On

I am
green growth
rising from rhizome,
bud and bulb.

I am
sepal, petal,
stigma, stamen,
stolon,

male and female,

sexual
and asexual.

I am
pretty where
you want me: I am tulip,
poppy, geranium
and rose.

I am
hogweed,
balsam, knotweed
where you
don’t.

No-one
can stop me.

No Arthur
can lock me up.

Even my beloved
in his cold stone fortress
loses his hold.

I am
Creiddylad.

I am freedom

reaching from
darkness towards
the sun.

I will go on.
