The Hinterland Fox
Late one autumn evening, I saw a great Red Fox.
I followed him among the gorse, then lost him in the rocks;
Kneeling on the yellow sand - the setting sun aflame,
I heard the sound of laughter and the whisper of my name......
Climbing amber sand dunes, I started up once more;
Saw the Fox a - lying by some round rocks on the shore.
But the light was playing tricks, as evening autumn can;
Amongst the rocks there was no Fox, but a charming red - haired man!
He rose and came towards me, and gently took my hand
Raised it to his lips and murmured "Welcome to my land....."
I frowned and said "You are misled. From woods to wild sea
The lichen, sand - this Hinterland - it all belongs to me!"
Then he sung......
“Turn your face to the Hinterland wind,
Would you go where the Red Fox lies?
Would you come with me, would you run with me
Forever under autumn skies?"
