Looking at the River Avon from Stratford, Summer 2011

at the end
of a long day
a gift of a day
a day spent
on my own
immersed in the life
of the most
famous poet
of all

I must confess
at this point
the magic
had deserted me
I stopped, sighed
closed my eyes

and when I
opened them
at the sight
of this small duck
swimming rapidly
away from me...

Stratford-upon-Avon, Summer 2011 ~ watching the river flow
