Student woodpecker

    River Alres, near Alresford

    Student woodpecker,
    carpenter of the sky,
    You codify,
    beak, bark, brain
    In the distance like the clacker
    Of some semantic loom
    Caught up in whose matrix of meaning
    A river gift
    waits wriggling
    As if tickled by
    A thought

    16 June 1966
