The Very Best of Vernon Scannell, Macmillan Children's Books 6 April 2001My son aged three fell in the nettle bed.

'Bed' seemed a curious name for those green spears,

That regiment of spite behind the shed:

It was no place for rest.With sobs and tears

The boy came seeking comfort and I saw

White blisters beaded on his tender skin.

We soothed him till his pain was not so raw.

At last he offered us a watery grin,

And then I took my billhook, honed the blade

And went outside and slashed in fury with it

Till not a nettle in that fierce parade

Stood upright any more.And then I lit

A funeral pyre to burn the fallen dead,

But in two weeks the busy sun and rain

Had called up tall recruits behind the shed:

My son would often feel sharp wounds again.

The parent\'s instinct is to protect the child and to try to remove danger. The poem shows how powerless parents are. Will the child\'s wounds remain metaphorical or will he eventuallly be explosed to the reality of war?
