Beauty trims heath and woodland
with beckoning sways in gentle
breeze, heads barely raised
as flowers slip between long grass,
emblems of love and death; where
fairies gather upon this peaceful
whisper of air, and along trails that
wend through bleakness.
Life here is slender, eager nods
quiver in cool of days; a liberated
flower – yet those knitted roots
concealed chase the crawling hours,
buried in darkness – their pace
quickening as rain stimulates
movement, and the Canterbury
bells ring out for you.
