I look into the distance
And there before my eyes
The wonderment of countryside
Was there with some surprise
The shadows in the background
The clouds all snowy white
A blue sky here in February
Is really a delight
The bramble hedge and long grass
The sheep look round to see
Who creeping up behind them
It’s ok it’s only me
My gaze it goes much further
Is that a spire I spy
A village hidden in the hills
To tempt the passer by
The colours…oh the colours
Not vibrant but soothing
With lots of different Greens and Browns
That we can see within
I turn a different aspect
Bare trees like silhouettes
Ploughed fields with deep brown furrows
This day there’s no regrets
The images I’ve seen today
Through camera lens are there
For me to keep within my heart
And with my friends to share.
