And Falling

Shower after shower circles these shores 
Sweeps over the moors
Flattening the bracken
Sheep shelter for cover
Skylarks stop singing
New streams are filling
Dancing down the slopes
Redefining the map
Shimmering against the purple heather
Green growth is abundant
But flowers faded have fallen
Leaf strewn lawns traversed by molluscs not humans
And the wind chases the clouds
Ever strengthening
Raindrops keep growing in size
And falling.
