LONG WALK OUT THE BACK

The blade that cuts the earth, turns bloody sod round by David’s place where lives a hare

and a pair of roe dear chasing showed up, white tailed in the evening light

The blue tractor done its rounds, left huge, wetted clods, gulls and a ghost flying nightly

it is a friendly sight as the dew begins to settle on the ghost, two dogs prone to baying

Farmer Stanley owns the tractor, attends to the steep bank himself where I find things

broken stones, hawk feathers, after a fox one time a cygnets bones and myself
