In the North West

Douglas J Fraser

 Next Poem          

Look where the road, a spring uncoiling,
Leads to the landscape of delight;
Follow beyond the lonely shieling
The heron’s heavy flight
White on the lochan’s peat-stained water
Waxen lily petals gleam;
Safe in the reeds around its border
Brown trout lurk and dream.
Sheer from the moor the mountain rises,
Corrie and stumbling scree;
Clear from its crest the eagle gazes
Westward to the sea
Across the shore-line softly shading
Blue to green to dazzling white
On palest sand where surf is sliding -
The Landscape of delight.
