village

the grey ribbon
of the road flows
down through the village
dissecting the two sides
here on the sunny side
days are longer and brighter
away from the shadow
of the dark hill
lower down
the road swings
round the church
a walled island
protected from the rush
and houses moored
to the road-river
bob gently in the wind
