Stage Play - Poem by peter rodenby

A Black stallion
in a yellow field
Coal over buttercups,
beside a river.
Midges swarm,
an irritated tail
swishes spasmodically,
falling water failing
cascades tunefully.
A swooping swift feeds
on busy insects
on the wing,
Restless faun rabbit runs,
erratic through
yellow green
speckled haze.
A weary watching walker
waits
wild wonder,
anticipates
the end
of these
innocent incidents
orchestrated,
choreographed,
perfect performance.
