The Greening fields of Devon

Far in the distance, blue haze,  
This scene is blue skied, blue and more blue,
And then to green , just below the thinnest of lines.
Some say it is the sky line.

Here then, there is a broader band
Of blue green.
This is landscape smudged by light.
This is the beauty.

Next another thin line
And the greening fields of Devon.
The hedgerow wonderland
The fertile pickings and the dairy.

Next another and final thin line.
Which delineates the foreground.
This a the time bending harvester
This is how to live.
