Food for Thought for Friday: Belsay Hall -- Picture Poem

The cow parsley now is 7 feet high

Bella Donna ranges high from cracks in the quarry wall
rose scents the air like votive prayer
gunneras shade the margins of the toad's customary lair
no matter the weather, rock remains shady cool 
the overhang of trees dapples the paths

At every level there is life at the Hall
Toothwart to roses there is room for all
