Feather's Miscellany: Summer Scene

The delights of summer bring John Waddington-Feather near to heaven.

The land waxes fat,
and deep the woodland pigeons
croat their calls;
swallows skim the trees
and higher still the shrieking swifts
sift out the air of flies;
the hedges buzz with scent,
with dog-rose and sweet honeysuckle;
and somewhere far away
a cuckoo sings his final song
before he flies away.

Summer’s here at last!

Its blue skies thrive,
its meadows and its ploughlands
lush the near-ripe fields,
and all’s aglow with sunshine
near to heaven –
and so am I!
