Lazy Poets Thursday Poem 4

Valley

Flow of spring beside the tracks.

Bend of river’s shingle bank

occupied by Whooper’s elegant lounge.

Hip like curve sinks to moist valley

then rises to a belly mound hill.

Distant lace edged horizon

naked with late winter oaks

abundant in their twisting forms.

Dull copper bracken awaits

a few degrees swell to break green.

Neat fields sprinkled with new lambs

and a dark dusting of crows.

Sanctuary of Devon hedge banks

South West landscape I’m home.

South West landscape I’m home.
