Spears of silver sunlight
Shoot through naked trees
Lighting up the leaf-strewn lane
that flickers in the breeze.
.
A squirrel scurries cross the track
A rabbit sits and stares
A pigeon sways upon a branch
A red fox stands and glares.
.
High in the sky,
unbroken blue, a perfect vee of geese.
On a distant hill a flock of sheep
Wrapped in winter fleece.
.
Red holly berries, mistletoe,
Ivy climbs stone walls.
Dormant plants and sleeping flowers
Wait til springtime calls.
.
November days, brief spells of sun
Evenings front a fire of logs
November nights of crackling frost
Misty dawns and frozen bogs.
.
Winter’s here
Spring can wait
Now’s the time to hibernate.
