Entering the Valley of Flowers

A poem

Another path where feet obey,
another way of slate and lime,
a winding track from yesterday,
a quickstep walk to sunrise time.

The circling of a bird of prey
and tail-less rats on grey moraine
that hope to keep their fur today;
a gasp of air when feet complain.
