Heather is never merely heather,
as moor is never merely moor.
Ever lain down in heather, got its measure,
seen how it shares its weather with
Asphodel and bilberry, crowberry and
cotton-grass, grows together with
Tormentil’s flower, moss’s cushion,
lichen’s feather?
Hold a heartful of heather, never let
  it wither,
Even as you travel far from crag and river –
Remember heather, the company it keeps,
its treasure.
