Beggshill October

Haworth Hodgkinson

 

Sad little unicorn
emerging in silence
from the orchard,

what thought lies
behind the wide beam
of your stare?

Is it the clenched acceptance
of the hardships to be borne
in the winter that lies ahead?

Or the vacancy of headswirl
from a binge of fallen plums
and hot fermenting hay?
