    Frontispiece by Virginia Lee




    Every star over the moors was a trouble,

    before it was speaking in light,

                                               the way stars do.


    Every journey was meaningless dust, until

    that moment the feet touched water

                                                         and tingled.


    Granite beneath us is restless in its core;

    cooling, heating, repeating patterns of flux.


    The old Dartmoor saying is true, now

    gorse is in flower and kissing's in season,


    while the steam closest to home

    is singing the song of songs.
