The Happy Valley

From my place up here,

in the woods, on the cliff

edge, I can see

tantalising blue glimpses of the sea.

The warm green leaves

obscure my view

and my smell is overwhelmed

by the scent of wild garlic

and bluebells that line

the stone pathway, winding

up through the trees towards the sea.

It is hard underfoot,

after a dry winter,

but it is spring now,

and I am ready.

 

This poem was inspired by my favourite place – Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall in the UK. It’s a poem about the hope of spring, and leaving behind winter and the cold, dark days. It’s a poem about loving a place and hope and spring.
