SCENES OF A CARELESS CHILDHOOD recited

SCENES OF A CARELESS BOYHOOD
The sound of water,escaping dams
willows,old rotten planks,slimy
posts,brickwork,old timber props
wet ditches,sedges and silvery nets
towpaths without gates,horses that
tow bargescollared with crimson fringe.
Wheat and thatched cottages and cornstacks
grasses in flower,bogrush bulrush and
teazle,so tall.Bindweed,wild carrot,
hemlock in bloom,cow parsley,plantain 
bramble in June.Poppy,thistle mallow
and hop.Purple heath,hills ans swift
running streams,true clear freah and
brisk as champagne about to pop.
From Constable letters to Rev John Fisher

*A Phrasis is a structured verse where the poet uses selected prose phrases of another writer’s(not a poet)  to compile  unique poetry therefrom as a tribute thereto,the word phrasis is Greek for phrase.

Listen to me read this phrasis of mine on youtube under the name ichthys
