I

A flight of ringdoves

Welcomes us to the heath.

Blackbird sings solstice carol

To midwinter sun.

Gorse blooms golden

Above frisking dogs

On Rushmere Common.

 

II

Brambles climb over dry brown bracken,

Squirrel scampers through rotting leaves,

Mighty oak looms through the gloaming,

Moon rises behind interlaced branches

Kesgrave Wood.

 

III

Bracken higher than a man

Adorned with ruby ladybirds,

Ravishing fragrance of honeysuckle

Mingles with wet vegetation,

Glossy bramble berries

Sweet and tart upon the tongue,

Bumblebee delves in purple heather bells,

August on Rushmere Common.
