On the Downs

by Jem Croucher

Up on the Downs
with sunshine and sheep
and lambs newly born
and hills always steep
and cows in the distance
and haze on the hill
and a marvellous view
that surprises me still

With good company
and dogs on a lead
and sparrow-hawks diving
on occasion at speed
This place just a moment
or two in the car
is always delightful
and spectacular
