  1. Lovely poem Matthew – very evocative of time and place, with a beautiful description of lapwings (they always remind me of sheets of newspaper flapping about in the wind). And just as I’m lulled into this pastoral idyll of sheep and becks, you bring me up short with a funny, ironic and very telling couple of lines at the end. Brilliant!
