A Morning Walk
18/June/2007 Filed in: Jottings
Up early and walked out onto the Downs. Saw a heron, grey as the morning light, and a fox slinking alongside a field of rape; swallows and house martins over the village, and out on the Downs the skylarks singing; lots of hares, with their silky ears and lolloping gait. No one else about. Perfect.
