Backyards, Clitheroe, with Rooks

The view from the rear window of the house we're renting- while painting Christmas windows in this market town in the Lancashire hills.

" The neighbours chainsaw snore cuts my dream,

Black rooks flown down from the castle keep

Cackle and hack among the chimneys.

A milkman's whine and chink.

Cars cough into life

And always around eight

That damn dog."
