11 a.m. Casterton

Nearly the fullest chimes
sung by the bells
from the clock
of the church in the trees,

As though the larch and the pine
struck eleven
this sunny morning,
as though the great maple
and ancient hawthorns
took a part
in our narratives,

As though variegated holly
and berried yew
and gold on falling leaves
affected our lives,
as they do.
