'flowering gorse bush'

'flowering gorse bush'
flowering gorse bush
leaning over
towards the sea
as if its growth
were towards completion
of yellow in blue

as leaves have grown
back in branches
songs have come
among the leaves
a gathering
in the young
whitebeam

The poetry of Thomas A. Clark has been consistently attentive to form and to the experience of walking in the landscape, returning again and again to the lonely terrain of the Highlands and Islands.
