Poem by Matthew Oates - "Fairies Beyond the Garden Bottom"
Fairies Beyond the Garden Bottom…
There is a wilderness in Corby, even now,
Where branches dance in tree-top wind,
Weaving new patterns on the memory board,
On the sound-scape of wooded life,
Just as spring roars home once more
And greens the clay land underwood,
Whilst the lingering musk of leaf mould
Tells of autumns long sunken by;
For forests are overruled by fungi –
Not just the scarlet elf cups we saw
But hidden, un-fruiting kinds - mycelia
Which usher fallen branches underground,
Healing the scars of storm-tossed days
That say this place can still be dangerous
Although it offers us escape and sanctuary
From our modern urban urbane world,
Into a truer time of deep-belonging,
Revealing again the wildwood of old
To every new set of wanderer eyes;
For once we were children of the forest,
Until we cleared the trees, to live apart,
Treating what remains of nature’s empire
As somewhere to visit when we like
To feel that lingering sense of freedom
And inveterate belonging – that sense
Of antiquity now slowly breaking down:
And always and forever our never ending
Love of places sanctified by mindful trees.
(Kingswood, Corby, Northants. Deep Roots Tall Trees. 26th February 2017)
