Snow sweeps over the turning tide
into Norfolk’s curved back.
It settles on cliff tops, marshes,
papers the ground, and when the moon
drops its smudged thumb print on the sea,
the only light is from land,
pure light, reflecting certainty
up into the dark ice-rink sky,
a clear disbelieving voice
when all around seems sacred.
Drifts scatter along the coastal path.
A group of daffodils,
brassy and leggy, flutter
at a paper boy,
but he wobbles away.
I clear the snow around them,
feel their glowing expectations.
