down down to Garrigill

boys up first and ready to go
brew on all round
sparrowhawk chasing birds, sparrows hide in the wall
a singing silhouette in the mist
8 am song, the arrival of a loved one
farewell to Adam and Paddy
two more silhouettes disappearing in to the mist
with our unwanted porridge inside them
the descent to Garrigill commences
long winding track in the fog
with light conversations
through lead mines, barytes and fluorspar
sparkling in the ground
streams flowing through peat hollows
six months ago we thought that we might inhabit these
and scare other passing walkers
today we walk past
this work is about the moving through
a short day
the arrival of two more loved ones
