From the poet Pam Ayres, Friday 18th October 2019


"How sad on this October day,

To see our hedges shorn away

Small creatures would have liked to eat

The hawthorn berries, rose hips sweet,

Blackberries and nuts and sloes

But through the blades the banquet goes,

Won't somebody hear our words

And leave the berries for the birds."
