In case you forget,
In all your darkest moments,
Sunshine dancing petulantly on the water.
I would like to share the majesty-
Endless lawns of forlorn, scraggly grass
Stretches and etches hills into life.
Formed from the hand of an artist,
Stroking the countenance
And beaming beauty into its many folds,
Little hovels of black, vert and emerald
Hide like mice and voles,
Shivering in the sanctity
And uncertain security
That the upside-down mounds afford.
The lane is a wash of blue,
Smiling delicately at a distance
Flowing as it waves,
Languid and gay,
Comfortable in it's age.
But one tree,
Hopelessly, out of place.
Feeling content, in its lovely face.
Even the sky agrees,
For there is no quarrel
Between it and the translucent, ethereal colours
Flooding the canvas.
What is the work of man compared to God?
And how much more beautiful it is than anything I have seen
A poem I wrote in the lake district
