Corby Glen and Bourne Woods

To Corby Glen
and Willoughby hall
for art exhibition

sunlight and shadow
trimmed trees follow the curve
of central flowerbed

the Woodhouse Arms
polished tables
and open fire

sandwiches, salad and coffee
by the sunny window

a curly pot sheep
watches us eat
sheep-wrapped mint chocs

in Bourne woods
criss-cross paths through autumn trees
lead to fenland views

wide grey skies
piled clouds slashed with blue
far flat horizon

light strengthens
from dark to sunbright
glowing bark

golden leaves
in the spotlight
against dark backdrop

A lovely, illustrated ginko which highlights a beautiful autumn day. Love the curly sheep!
