from, A Country Diary

Wenlock Edge (second)

the hawthorn berries
the hawthorn moon
under the harvest moon berries
shines nights
under the harvest shines with
and nights with bright autumn rains
and bright autumn days
morning rains
days morning days
morning days

now the haws
now brown gold
brown the haws are
at red
gold are
at their gold red
their most yellow
gold most dazzling
gold yellow dazzling
though green gold
though not gold green
not yet gold
gold yet edible
and is gold edible
and the season
the season is the season
