Milngavie, end of April


Siege mentality
frowns in town all round
hoods up shoppers hurry
while above the banal collage
of benign suburban roofs
distant green fields halt
their spring advance midway
the Campsies cloaked ice-white
implacable cliff faces
deathly chorus line
cold northerly breathing
down quivering backs
necklines plunging mercury
violent voile of mist
ruff collar sheer shift
eyes turn grey and steely blue
the clouds regroup
consider every hue.
