Larks Over The English Downs

Larks Over The English Downs

A Poem by Sarah Conder

Resplendent and merry are the afternoon hours,

Cradled in the midst of summer.

The melodious lark soars over heather-blanketed downs;

A dazzling array of violet against a

Pure azure sky,

For Nature is alive with celebration,

She has much to rejoice! She spreads her

Earthen boughs, like the delicate wings of the Holly Blue,

Embracing, nurturing her young;

The sapling and the rosebud, as they burst forth

From their winter slumber.

One can lie among the undulating grass,

Rippling with the wind’s gentle caress,

Contented and at ease, whilst all around the

Sloping hills are bathed in the warmth

Of the mellowed Sun.
