Slowdive

Monday 10th August

The hottest day yet.
A little adventure.    
With a seven year old and a seventy year old 
Through field of golden mown hay 
To find the River Roach

We get as far as a wooded glade     
with a little confluence of streams 
And throw stones and play poo sticks.  
Jealously watching dogs cool off in the water

The signpost points to two of our previous walks.
And on to the lake in cherry orchard.  
But the heat points us home.  
Via blackberries, sloes 
And the bubblegum shop

Here now by the pond.   
And the shade offers some relief 
from the simmering heat.
Silver scales glide slow 
Needles float in swirls 
And Poisonous pineberries bob 
in the lightest of winds.

High and low Dandelion fairies drift 
But the main movement
comes from the white Butterflies    
fluttering silently all around

Paralyzed – The Cardigans – Lyrics Video – YouTube

This is where your sanity gives in 
And love begins 
Never lose your grip Don’t trip 
Don’t fall 
You’ll lose it all 
The sweetest way to die 
It lies deep inside 
You can not hide 
It’s the meanest fire 
Oh it’s a strange desire 
You can not lie 
That’s a needless fight 
This is where your sanity gives in 
And love begins 
Never lose your grip 
Don’t trip 
Don’t fall 
You’ll lose it all 
The sweetest way to die 
When your blood runs dry 
You’re paralyzed 
It will eat your mind 
Did you hold it back 
It comes to you in slow attacks 
It’s the meanest fire
