‘Verdant Land’ – A new poem

A new poem for the new year about Gloucestershire’s countryside.


‘Verdant land’

Gloucestershire land
For miles it surrounds
The heart of the City

Verdant land
Inspires the mind
Hills to walk
Fields to explore
With paths aplenty

Upon the hills, trees sit
Summer filled with leaves
The change in autumnal colours
A winter brings a bare silhouette
To spring with new growth, new hope

Snow may fall through hills to streets
Seeing the land in a different light
Until the ice and snow flows away
With verdant land seen once again

Whatever the weather I will walk
To see the vibrant land again and once more
In sunshine or dull rain there is light to be found
Across verdant land of Gloucestershire.
