The poem was composed, by  the artist to accompany the  painting above "And the Cuckoo sang near Cranberry Rock" on Monday June 1st 2020.

And the Cuckoo sang

Near Cranberry Rock,

And we from Town

Were in Lockdown,

Fearful of illness and

Faces with masks

But Nature heads not

Our pointless tasks

to keep apart in isolation,

Helpless victims of desolation.

The cuckoo sings to find his mate,

And Nature burgeons in full spate

Scattering golden blooms

On Shropshire hills.

And Lark ascending into blue

Fills my heart with joy renewed,

That Spring will come again each year

With fresh colour, hope and cheer
