Field Visit


Not expecting company the cows
Were shy: they had not brushed their hair
Perhaps: but these are tiny baby cows
A-scared of me, the visitor explains
Her hair all feral in the wintry air, her hands
Drape palm up over the fence, a gesture
Placatory to the shuffling herd. An affable
Insouciance ensues.

This is exquisite! Just came in from hedge-trimming with asthma and had enough wind left to laugh. Enchanting.

Asthma sounds rather useful here :-) x
