Drizzle persists beyond a day of rain.

Though sheep move warily away, one stays;

two horses shod in sodden blankets raise

their heads to look and lower them again.

 

Water rises cloudily in the brook.

Woodpecker bolts; a flash of egret wing;

the heron resumes its grey wandering –

‘they flee from me that oft-times me forsook’.

 

But now a mobile rings enquiringly.

Woodburner calls – a gash of yellow flame;

the animals around the hearth are tame

and one there will complete the company.
