Yorkshire Dales III – Walls

1020169

 

Walls

 

Stone: stretched

from fell to rigg

from crag to beck

 

grey patched

lichen plumed

pocked and pitted

 

pile on pile

pressed by cow pelt

brushed by sheep shank

 

the land’s flanks

stitched with

drystone ribs

  1. I like this one best too, but they’re all very fine poems. And it’s particularly impressive that they’ve been written on the hoof (wheel?) The dales are obviously poetically inspiring.

Please tell me what you think?
