Poppy Field and Trees. 

20th century
In Memoriam

 

A warm stillness –

1234567890a wild wreath.

 

… a garden of cows –

1234567890calfless, milk-heavy

turning the grass

 

the furl of tongues/

123456789101the raw cud –

12345678light and shade on a green grave.

 

Woodnotes in a roof of oak/ a roof

12345678910111213141516171of rain

 

123456789101sun-out/

 

five stone winters

and only a hope of bone.

 

The night red-throated…

 

1234567890a warm stillness

 

12345678910111213141a field of flowering blood.
