After Hockney

I thought of Hockney
on Beeding Hill
hawthorn in blossom
and beautiful still
The little white flowers
exuberant here
bright in the sunshine
at this time of year

And though in the valley
it’s Sussex I see
The essence of Yorkshire
encapsulates me
And I see in an instant
what to David they meant
as hawthorn in blossom
from heaven is sent
