Poems, Volume Two

Welcome to the second volume of ‘Poems’.

The transition from autumn into Winter is magical.

The turning of the leaves, the chill winds blowing, and the carpet of gold in their wake makes country life such a pleasure. Our village’s Harvest Festival is a time of celebration when all come together in an ancient ritual as important now as in the pages of history.

However before we fully immerse ourselves in the coming season, let’s begin this Volume by casting our minds back to sunnier days, when Steve and Susanne Clarke invited us to revisit their ‘right-size’ home in rural Essex.

If you have explored Poems Volume 1, their names may sound familiar…

We’re exactly where we are supposed to be. We just took the scenic route getting here. Just as oak is a testament to permanence, patience, strength, and grace – so, too, is Oakwrights.
