Highlands


There is a land called Highlands
Where cattle, citrus thrive
White orange blossoms languish
In rolling hills alive
Sleek birds and boar and vipers
In nature's balance strive

Once long ago I lived there
Nor have returned again
But here and there reminders
Rise in my dreams of when
Our love was fresh as sunshine
That kissed a young girl's skin.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
