January 15, 2022, Didsbury Churchyard, Fletcher Moss Park, The Old Village

Low winter sun

Strikes a light

On the old, winding tree,

Climbs like ivy to the top

Of the church tower,

Misses the pink granite tomb

Surrounded by railings of rectitude,

And drifts over the flood plain

Drowning out the park.

After that, there is dark.
