Solstice Sun Down from Peneverdant

Sun down over St Mary's Church and beech tree., Castle HillFrom the seat of power
where castle and church ruled
between tree and tower
I watch the golden sun fall.

In its final panorama
I see a summer land drawn
behind the roofs and chimneys
and limits of my town

with parapets of purple mist
and blazing eiderdown.
It vanishes like fairy gold
as winter’s hail redounds.

Summer land, from Castle Hill
