Ode to Achillea millefolium (Yarrow)
Lacerations and bruises, bleeding and chills, a fever and fibroids yarrow it heals.
Though bitter and pungent, cold and dry this herb will cool and tonify.
The tongue it is red and cracked down the middle, the veins they are blue and fast like a fiddle.
When you are irritated and tissue depressed, the veins it will cool along with the chest.
Dyspepsia, colitis, arthritis and gout Yarrow’s not an herb you want to rule out.
When the maidens flow comes to her late, yarrow’s an herb which will promote and stimulate.
Her loins they will cramp, her flow in excess, yarrow will slow the bleed and make it less.
When the pressure is high and the head it aches, a tea of the flowers for goodness sakes.
