MUSIC

A BEAUTIFUL NEW POEM BY DAVE ALLDRED


MUSIC



At first, my feet heartbeat tarmacadam,

Creating a metronome for my stroll.

An overture of golden daffodils

Fills locked down eyes with enhanced radiance.


Passing through an untouchable gateway,

Signature changes, time becomes gravelled.

The Minch is a movement of sky spun blue,

Evoking bars of spindrift piano.


From a lichened branch the blackbird calls me,

Drumbeat stops while he croons a melody:

A song old as time, fresh as meadow dew.

Was nature’s music ever more precious?
