RUNNING STREAM
 
Running rush of a crystal fall
that babbles its route through
down further than the deepest drop
A fallow deer tortuously climbs
its path past the run of its rush
past earth that fragments with
the bake of a hot summer sun
Water hops the stone castle it
builds from the shist of the upper cwm
drenched with the wet chorus of the
valley life it holds forth
Brecon 06.05.96
