Ceramic stoneware by Ann Clarkson
East Riding of Yorkshire 

Canopy ramblers keep nearby
In and out of the shadowy wood
Stealing away on twig covered leaves
Unseen in a bracken stitched hood

Immersed in the senses of forestry
Granting knowledge to wide open eyes
Alone in the beauty of natural life
Wearing wisdom’s seductive disguise

Seeing shapes and sounds of greenwood
In profusion so finely displayed
Feeling the glimpse of a tree eye to eye
Where ancients inhabit the glade

    You'll have me living in me sore-arse at this rate. *smiles*.

    The poem is fabulous. Outstanding!
