 the gypsy poet

a boy on the heath

      as a boy on the canford heath
      i broke hearts and teeth
      i climbed the pines and silver birch
      the heath was my church

      the Manning's was my sweet domain
      roses climbing
      with daisy chains

      acorns and fir cones opened wide
      grassy banks and water springs to ride
      heather dew and furze bush branch
      chimney stack and crickets dance

      hares a leaping on the moor
      cattle grazing
      goldfinch robin and bumble bees
      weeping willow and tall oak trees
      what a boyhood life for me
      just across from alderney
