THE LANGUAGE I LOVE

Oh how sweet and melodious
Is the language of mute creatures
More soothing to my soul
Than the rude language of people

How tranquilly, how tenderly
The trees talk to me
The gurgling at the water’s edge
The heath on the mountains

The broom of the warrens
Waving in the wind
The golden sea of the moors

That tell me legends
That sing me verses
Arthur. Isolde. Merlin (l)

March 1968.

(1) Famous personnages from Celtic legends.
