Mousehold Heath Defenders


Sun blazing down on a very hot day

Heating the ground to a crisp
Clouds non-existent in glorious blue
Wind just a will-o-the-wisp

Surrounding the heath there’s a frenzy of cars
Roaring like bulls on the run
Surrounding the gorse are a frenzy of flies
Buzzing around in the sun

Yet here under my tree an oasis of calm
With the glare merely drizzling past
Breeze tickling leaves in a dance just for me
And I’m hoping this moment will last

Tricky beside me is sniffing a fern
Then he lazily looks up at me
I smile then I bend to pick up his stick
That he found at the base of the tree

Just one more moment to capture and keep
In that space in my mind where they lay
Those moments to nurture and cherish
That sustain me through life day by day

I know that I’ll always have memories
To recall when the going gets tough
So my heart and my mind I keep open
To collect them, so I’ll have enough.
