(Sussex)

And I remember
Your woods
Rectangular upon
The rounded hill
Moel and valley road
With aluminium sea
Connect
Its sunfilled hollows
Laughing
A chord of music to
This placid heart
Or words of wind
Which fling your hair
The vision of a child
In playing.

And then
The quietness of night
No whisper in the room
(Elves and a rabbit on
The fire screen
The cat thumps one
Uneasy paw in sleep)
Within the sallow paces
Of the clock
The wan smile
Of dying fire
Your peace
White curve
Of arm and breast
A long forgetting
In your distant eyes
For I believe
In you
In quietness
Your beauty.
