Heels 1973

[untitled poem by John Black]

Lying on my back on green slops,
Afternoon sun warming my face.
White dots on the hillside
More occasionally, slowly,
Without looking up.

The lazy stream weaves past my feet,
Pockets of fern, supplejack,
A stray rimu left standing
Are sad remnants of a glorious past
But peacefully accepting their loveliness.
