May Day 23

allium vineale

from the east
seems out of place

Poetry form for the month of May: Tetractys/5 lines/syllable count 1-2-3-4-10.

From Wikipedia: Allium vineale (wild garlic, onion grass, crow garlic or stag’s garlic…also called “Dready”) is a perennial, bulb-forming species of wild onion, native to Europe, northwestern Africa and the Middle East. The species was introduced in Australia and North America, where it has become a noxious weed.

I had never seen this plant before. Of course I had to look it up!
