Through the Gate Down the Lane

Through the gate down the lane
all the colours, splits in path
creaking, cracking, axed by frost
scythed by time.

Through the gate down the lane
footsteps left, gone to dust.
Voices in the limbs of trees
shaking leaves when the wind is in.

Through the gate down the lane
where summer has been only once.
Scorch marks of light left behind
the house is nettled, broken, still.
