A sideways slip of balance brings us,
almost un-noticing,
into this new atmosphere.

I hear lorries on the motorway
humming drone-songs through skinny air.
I’m sure they’re moving faster,
urgent now to be somewhere.

Driving home in defected daylight
past budding trees on Spinney Lane:
the uncurling Spring is here.
