The gentle January sun seeps through the cloud
Presiding over the world with subtlety and grace
And casting a delicate light on everything below
There is stillness over the landscape today, a calmness,
As if everything is exactly as it is supposed to be
In the distance horses are grazing in their fields
Snug in their winter coats, and enjoying being outside
Birds fly hither and thither, some braving the skies alone
Some in formation, swirling, with careful precision
Sounds travel: a faraway rugby match, dogs barking
The shooters fire in bursts, muted by the woodland
People wander, exchanging greetings as they pass
Having come from here, or on their way to there
But taking time out to re-charge, to relax and unwind
A patch of blue sky is revealed as the clouds part
And the weak rays of sunshine temporarily strengthen
A little slice of peace, a collective moment in time.
