Poetic sketch: Derbyshire

2006-06-04 21:57:56 GMT/BST

Here's a quick a bit of poetry that I wrote this afternoon, inspired by a holiday in Derbyshire a few weeks ago. It's very rough, but not bad for 25 minutes work.

The architecture of the land
(assembled by some unseen hand
that over Titan slabs of time
has built the hills that now we climb)
unfolds and winds in forms beneath
of twisting river, heathered heath
and woods that hide in dappled shade
the rocks from which these hills are made.
