Reynard the Fox

“The stars grew bright in the winter sky

The wind came keen with a tang of frost

The brook was troubled for new things lost

The copse was happy for old things found

The fox came home and he went to ground.”

Autumn ploughing

“After the ranks of stubble have lain there,

And field mice and the finches’ beaks have found

The last spilled seed corn left upon the ground;

And no more swallows miracle in air;

When the green turf no longer hides the hare,

And dropping starling flights at evening come;

When birds except the robin, have gone dumb,

And leaves are rustling downwards everywhere;

Then, out, with the great horses, come the ploughs,

And all day long the slow procession goes,

Darkening the stubble fields with broadening strips

Gray seagulls settle after to carouse :

Harvest prepares upon the harvest’s close

Before the blackbird pecks the scarlet hips.”
John Masefield
