Berkshire Bluebells
Berkshire Bluebells Berkshire Bluebells

A countryside walk: what a breath of fresh air! 
I pause by the side if the pathway and stare.  
The trees and the meadows and hillsides beyond, 
Behind me, a field full of sheep and a pond. 

And up in the sky there’s a cloud like a face 
Which is not quite projecting and not quite in place 
But is seems to be blowing a fine salt-sea scent 
Which is such a relief, yes indeed, heaven sent! 

I can’t smell the bluebells, but scattered around 
They carpet the avenue and don’t make a sound. 
Not totally silent: some chirps from the birds 
A chaos of high pitches, perhaps in bird words 

A musing of sight and sound, sunlight and smells; 
The waves from the beauty of nature, in swells  
Of delight, and delighted I walk on my way 
Full of joy, but perhaps I should stand here and stay.

Dense wooded glade with ivy, in Berkshire, in the English spring, with orange tulips and daffodils and many bluebells.
