Poem 2: Hard Frosts
Wonderful downpour of Leaf –
When all the morning sun began to melt the frost they feel at one touch
In a few minutes the whole tree was flung of them
They lay masking and papering the ground at the feet –
Then the tree seems to be looking down on its cast self –
As blue sky on snow after a long fall, its losing its doing
White poplar leaves at this season, silver behind, olive back at front.
Birch leaves on a fading tree give three colours green, white and yellow.

Forecast said Sunny intervals during afternoon and as cloud broke about 1030am and sun came out. Decided to go somewhere more local for the afternoon. Even with blustery west wind if felt pleasant to start, but wind moved round to Southeast during the afternoon and became increasingly colder. Cloud although more broken than first thing this morning. Didnt reveal Sun all that much broken cloud away from the Sun) and the cold wind and mostly dull sky made it quite unpleasant to be out in - not so bad out of the wind. Post Office at Lynsted now closed. First time we have been out since December 11th. - Mostly wet and cloudy while Ken has been off except for Boxing day - and then no transport. Fields and ground everywhere completely waterlogged with so much rain recently
-couldnt possibly have negotiated any fields today. The route deliberatly avoided them. It looks as if they will take a while to dry out and meanwhile more showery and wet weather is on the way.
