POEM OF QUIETNESS
(Westmoreland)
The fair boy
With bursting heart
Clashes on scree
Cut with sedge grass
And leaps the secret swamp
To the Nine Standards
Elusive rocks mark
On bracken moor
Pendragon
The knight gazing
From splintered stones
On Westmoreland
To final cairns
Urging his upward strides
Which break the sun
With singing.

But his dark brother
Is a man of solemn mood
And with a murmur
Returns
The reality of dropping steps
Pushing his shadow
Down the ruts
To Eden at evening
Which is the slender
Wire of silver
Half tree hid
To me singing
My poem from
The coloured hilltop
To the hills of Wales.
