First Day of Spring

From a walk in Derbyshire today

I look up at the hills,
I walk beside still water,
I search for the right paths,
I make peaceful tracks.

Here a Comma,
There a Peacock;
Butterflies on Blackthorn blossom.
Puddles coagulate with frogspawn:
It’s World Frog Day.

Wild geese float on blue water,

Calling softly to each other.

I’m happy inside and out,
Marvelling at the Universe,
Glad to breathe.
