The Purple Tree

The tree was purple, all lit up
in the middle of the night
Came across it suddenly
all shiny there and bright

Spent a good few moments
beneath its leafy boughs
In awe of its magnificence
emotions to arouse

Prince there of the woodland
the homage paid by this
illumination glorified
was beautifully amiss

The purple tree was part of the ‘For the Birds’ experience at this May’s Brighton Festival. For more about that, see this.

 

Magnificence

And I will never tire of this
fine view of Sussex Weald
Each time I’m here I am sustained
renewed, alive and healed

It holds magnificence and awe
Its vista I applaud
I leave refreshed and satisfied
But will still come back for more
