Syleham

At Syleham bridge
light from nowhere paints
abstracts on the tree-lined river:
modern art on ancient canvas

A ladder leads into troubled water
and an empty bench waits for the right man
or woman

Not quite angel country
but rumours of a dove persist
somewhere upstream

and the bright white walls of
Tollbridge Cottage
stand sentry for free

as needles weave summer
into patchwork veins
and the usual suspects
pretend to leave
