N2 Queen Anne's Lace.jpg

Yearly, above the right of way—
late-summer-evening, air stagnant and dusty—

Queen Anne’s Lace continues its blooming.
Blackberry bushes produce under-sized berries,

if any at all.  Small evergreens beside
Daucus Carota, whose flowers grow in clusters:

a white and delicate wonder, sacred wild carrot,
the tap root of the young plant edible, used

for jelly or cake.  Beauty like heaven,
abundant like legends of England’s Queen Anne,

who tats delicate lace or dons her queenly
headdress.  Or perhaps, it’s named for Saint Anne.

When taken medicinally, sometimes it’s for
contraception, other times fertility.
