There is a spot

Down by the river

Where the fence has rotted away 

So it looks like the water

Has slowly eroded its foundations

And across the stretch

Of still, calm water

Some wild flowers 

Have run a riot

Of joyous yellow 

Almost to the water’s edge

It is a great place 

To sit and contemplate 

The beauty of the world
