Poems :  "England in the Summer"
Tags: rain   water   rape   seed   poppies  
 
The path was empty and it smelt of Summer rain
the grass was green and soft but yellowing at the tips
the rolling fields were blanketed with ripening grain,
the corn rows stretched for miles in widening strips.
Here and there a wild daisy kissed the sun
noisy crickets and croaky frogs made a cacophony
the flowers awaiting the pollinating to be done
added the colour to this ageless symphony.
white water rushed headlong through a ravine
carrying everything on its march to the sea
a fox and cub cavort in a display which is rarely seen
in this wild and beautiful English country scenery.
The low foothills are covered in bright red poppies
while the yellow of rape for rapeseed oil is everywhere
the fox cub watches his mum and then he copies
while the wings of a humming bird vibrate the air.
now and then a thatched roofed cottage springs up
in the skies a peregrine falcon hovers ominously
the fox spots the bird of prey and hides its pup
whilst flirting with death perilously.
A lovelorn nightingale sings its heart out
the nest building period is now over
the time for deciding leaves no doubt
time to move into to the nest of its new lover.
these scenes play in my mind's eye but for a blink
and are gone again before I can retain them
a whole world lost forever in a wink
faster than my imagination can entertain them.


Few places can compare in breathtaking beauty to Summertime in the English countryside- Frank Letras



and rubbish and poisoned rivers and polution... bah humbug
