weather

driving rain in hand

sideways wind

wind

sun bright and foggy

rainbow clear and cloudy

large sky

the grey poplars hold a heronry

their top leaves show silvered undersides like coins

reed maize and bullrush line wet ditches

(golden snail, lapwing, beetles, kestrel, skylark, snipe)

in September water lowers grass

drives hungry cattle to congregate

near marsh drains

and muddle herds

with November they take the home walk

where they are barned and sorted
