Canal Kaleidoscope

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frost upon the towpath
A golden light's reflection
Illuminates a dawning day
That promises perfection
Canal a placid ribbon
'Tween avenue of trees
Its surface a kaleidoscope
Of multi-coloured leaves
Cleaving through the silence
A narrowboat moves by
Smoke from out its silver stack
Ascending to the sky.
