I'm From…

I’m from bathtimes in the kitchen sink.

From Johnson’s soap and Mum’s perfume.

I’m from sunflowers by the fence (golden yellow,

dusty faced, they beamed at me.)

I’m from the ivy scrambling up the  apple tree,

whose sturdy trunk grew from the ground.

Like my solid, planted feet.

Kate Ashton.
