A Deserted Village

97An Architect would no doubt weep

at the maze of tumbled rock found

sad, lonely, lost beneath the sweep

of beaten bracken paths. Summer

brings bright silence with each new dawn.

The shadow of  Hound Tor retreats

revealing a hamlet, not mourned,

resting in natures verdant shroud.

Man forgotten, sheep and goats graze,

skylarks spar with zephyrs over

wild flowers, wild herbs, wildlife.  A place

of plague, abandoned, lost in thyme.
