It Does Us Good

posted in: Poems 2014 | 0

The sky is big in Wiltshire.

The buildings fall away

the eye adjusting to

a wider landscape.


It does us good:

we expand our vision.


We let nature breathe in us –

touching maybe joy,

maybe sadness, but



It does us good:

we feel our feelings.


The Wiltshire Downs are

big enough to hold us.


It does us good:

let us be held.
