Down where the dormouse gently sleeps,
Beneath decaying garden mould,
The ivy on the rowan creeps
As leaves in autumn turn to gold.
Bare is the earth and sharp of scent
For half the beauty of the day,
As birds eat berries with content
While squirrels secrete nuts away.

And while the rose shakes off her gown
Of lipstick pink and ivory,
My poppies all a tremble frown
As spiders spin in shrubbery.
Yet as the afternoon grows dim,
Clouds turn from grey to paper-white,
While sycamores groan limb by limb,
And beetles scuttle, taking fright.

The wind's loud blowing round the house,
While storm flies at my window pry,
But all is quiet as a mouse,
Inside where all is warm and dry.
The twilight hour is still and sweet
And like the cats I’m snug as they,
Denying winters mournful beat,
With thoughts of summer castaway.

Beyond the shore and off the crescent bay,
a turquoise sea as clear as crystal hides
a rocky reef where scorpion fishes prey
on unsuspecting creatures of the tides.

Seahorses dart amongst the tall sea kelps;
crabs sidle furtively between the rocks.
As dolphins guide a boat, a harp seal yelps:
“Hey, who among you people is the cox?”

But then, a roiling thunderstorm descends
and roaring whitecaps crash against the beach.
As stingrays bury themselves in the sands,
scared sea anemones and urchins screech.

Beneath the moon, the calm sea may enthrall;
believe me, it will not when there’s a squall.
