A love in verse

Cotswolds

I came here in the car

Looking on the land

And thinking about trees.


And that they never mar

The scene nor make it bland

But ultimately please


They don’t command the field

Yet are essential to it

And also they’re like us


Against the world a shield

So calm and sense run through it

And there need be no fuss


But only at our best!
Else we’re Leylandii

Messing up the view


Violent and depressed

Making schisms in the sky

So darknesses accrue


Rather be serene

And to the world a way

Under sun and storm


Gracing earth and green-

Loving light of day

And when the shadows form

Ever Young

I’ve never thought of you as less than young

Though things concern you – imagined lines, maybe

White veins among your hair’s dark ore...

Anatomy

Shall I begin with your rare hair

Heaven to press my face against?

Eyes to bring me to despair...
