“A sprinkling of tumbledown cottages” #poem #poetry #writing

A sprinkling of tumbledown cottages 
whose whitewashed walls 
huddle beneath a cluster 
of thatched rooftops 

Crouch low on the crest 
of rolling hills of emerald green 
That overlook patchwork fields 
in russet red 
the colour of ploughed soil 
And old gold 
ready for harvest 
as far as the eye can see 

Beneath vast skies
awash in a pale blue
Daubed with a whisper of gauze
in pure white
From a smattering of thin clouds 
a’hover aloft in the empyrean heights
