Field on the edge of Bodmin Moor


Spring is all around
on Bodmin Moor
new life abounds
with this green floor

new grass is strong
green blades will just arise
cropped surface never long
fresh growth before my eye

field unblemished green
lawn tennis court of old
perfection rarely seen
no undulations to behold

ewes, lambs quietly graze
bleating music fills the air
on this glorious of days
these creatures without care

fleece caught by the wire
out of sight and over brow
melodious hidden choir
Spring perfection now

Fleece caught by the wire - what perfect inspiration for poetry!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm: The fleece and the bleating all combined to get my mind working on this poem. Inspiration it most definitely was.

Lovely poem, Cuby! I can see the cute lambs on the field. The fleece might come in handy for some bird to grab it for its nest. Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!
