Annoying


The yellow flowers on the roadside are canola. How annoying is that, when I wanted to see it in the field its flowers had all gone and yet in the wild they are still flowering weeks later.

Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree

the nest-builders side by side.
