Woodbine aka Honeysuckle

Woodbine

Our honeysuckle’s broken loose,
hangs free of the wall,
sends out suckers and side shoots
rooting itself where it chooses;
lonicera, common woodbine,
no-one knows why it twines clockwise;
but cut back hard to the woody stem
its questing tips probe out again
spiral round a fence or gate;of all our plants
the most tenacious – it flowers twice
a pink and cream mass of blooms;
the bees in it loud all this June,
night flying moths drawn by its perfume.
