Harcamlow Way – a partial etching
echoing themselves on old roads,
shaping the carved field lines,
curves and contours of the land
and then a sharp and sudden
angle onto the rising track
sloping slowly upwards into a wide
open Cambridge sky.
in sudden preparation for the flush and roll of spring
and when three months later wild dog roses
nose the track with wedding arches, petalled pink,
than recent man shaped gods.
