Five hares on a morning field
Five ways to wake early
To glorious sunshine.
Spring’s clocks springing forward
Bringing me stumbling out early across the yard
My myopic squintings
Saluting the sun.
Startled at the springing forward of the hares,
At their desperate hurtling away
And them disappearing into the back bog.
From where I was never to see them again.
Binoculars squinting serving…
