path-festooner, soft moss-carpeted
modest spindled thing, budding shoots
firing on brown cylinders, thicket-maker
crouching in the fugitive spring
small curator of small creatures
dormice alive with ink-filled eyes
nightingales spilling songs
into the dusk of Kentish skies
catkin-quiverer, water-diviner
bendy-branched earth mystery-seeker
caterpillar-cradler, sweet nut-giver
quiet tree, my secret keeper
