Field Study










Cattle on the road down
the long slow curve of Eggarton
Hill into Marshwood Vale, a few
cars straggling behind, Golden Cap’s
outline finding its place in the
slipstream of mind, valleys and hills
folding remote from view, bronze
age hedgerows hung with songbirds,
rolling screens of pale light
and seasonal rain shifting through
the vale of delicate events,
a painter’s palette of earth tones
shaking at the edge of fields
ready to be brought to book,
under the brush, a twist of umber
for new ground turned by the plough
