The Ridgeway

Ancient Trackway


All Ages Waken

Long thousand years fly lost
Since Alfred gazed the Vale in moods as these -
Ago when wildboar ranged the marshy plain
Ere forest yielded: when, cut hoar, the Horse
Saw Saxon truce with Dane. Yet no more rapt
Hung vesper magic then than pauses now
In beauty hallowed timeless, unbetrayed:
For, God -

All ages waken when there falls
Of evening, spell-bound, so enchanted calm

Roye England
