Vee Of Geese





















A skein of geese high overhead

Winging from the sea

Calls preceding flight inland

In shape of perfect vee

Across the low tide mudflats

The haunting curlew cry

As out the sun-drenched grasslands

The flocks of finches fly

New Year on the seawall

The rain replaced by chill

And over creeks and waiting boats

The old church watches still.
