Description

'My son aged three fell in the nettle bed.
'Bed' seemed a curious name for those green spears,
That regiment of spite behind the shed'.

In this marvellous poem war veteran Vernon Scannell imagines a regiment of nettles wounding his infant son.

In our lesson plan, students explore how Scannell personifies the nettles and uses them as a metaphor for the 'whips and scorns of time'.
