FEBRUARY SUNSET FROM MY NEW HOME

Image

I’ve grown to love this country view

Of dark-brown fields ploughed a-new.

 

Candy clouds shot through with pink

Cloak the winter sun which sinks

 

Into darkening twilight grey,

Sucking colours from the day.

 

The distant lights of Kinsale town

Twinkle through her peat-smoke gown,

 

And silvery strips of estuary

Remind me that I’m near the sea.
