Napowrimo Day 8 Prompt

So day eight’s prompt was to write a Palinode which is a poem which retracts a statement made by the author in an earlier poem. To make this relevant to Napowrimo I have decided to use my poem from day one https://mostlynocturnalscribbler.wordpress.com/2015/04/01/napowrimo-early-prompt/

Today’s poem:

Its not too late to live on a farm

yesterday the city was at its greyest

in the rain and the gale blowing

newspapers and litter skyward

concrete crowds out the clouds

all the desperation and noise

causes me to dream of a farm

a small plot hedgerow bordered

beauty of fallow fields wildflowers

high in the summer attract butterflies

longing makes me forget I am impractical

I am desirous of the almost silence of trees
