Poem number 29.
Seeking inspiration again today, I’ve come up with a sort of quiz. Below is a poem, each line of which describes a thing.
Question 1 – What are all those things?
Question 2 – All of them have genuine names except for two. Which two have I made up?
Not hard at all, but if you need a clue or want to know where to find them, they are all right next to the labyrinth at Urrbrae, shown in the picture above.
By Any Other Name
Summer Snow persists into autumn
Seduction is pink with a vulnerable bud
Golden Shower is yellow with a distinctive scent
Peace broke out in France in 1942
Cocktail is deep red, mixed with pale
Dearest has had her limbs savagely cut
Shady Lady casts a jaundiced eye
Neighbourhood Cat has sated its appetite
Climbing Buff Beauty spreads her arms, displaying her body
Mission Bells ring a brick path
Tuna Sandwich has been devoured
Orange Triumph gave false hope in Germany in 1937
Borderers have not been repelled
