This darksome burn, horseback brown,

His rollrock highroad roaring down,

In coop and in comb the fleece of his foam

Flutes and low to the lake falls home.

 

A windpuff-bonnet of fawn-froth

Turns and twindles over the broth

Of a pool so pitchblack, fell-frowning,

It rounds and rounds Despair to drowning.

 

Degged with dew, dappled with dew

Are the groins of the braes that the brook treads through,

Wiry heathpacks, flitches of fern,

And the beadbonny ash that sits over the burn.

 

What would the world be, once bereft

Of wet and of wilderness? Let them be left,

O let them be left, wildness and wet;

Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.

Gerard  Manley Hopkins

A Good Night Out
(for the dog)

There once was a man of Bengal,
Who was asked to a fancy dress ball;
He murmured, “I’ll risk it
And go as a biscuit”—
But a dog ate him up in the hall.

Anon.

—————————————————-

Children aged 12-18 years on Show Day

It’s dark in here
I am writing these lines
From inside a lion,
And it’s rather dark in here.
So please excuse the handwriting
Which may not be too clear,
But this afternoon by the lion’s cage
I’m afraid I got too near.
And I’m writing these lines
From inside a lion,
And it’s rather dark in here.
