In Norfolk the sign reads slow you down
just in case we were driving too fast.
I was probably driving too fast
to see the flowers in the hedgerows.
We love the flowers in the hedgerows
no matter what the season of the year.
At any time or season of the year
we listen to Schubert’s Trout Quintet.
Listening to Schubert’s Trout Quintet
the slow movement is of course the second.
Of course we should move slowly for some seconds.
No, more than that. Maybe for a day—
even more maybe—for a year and a day
in Norfolk where the sign reads slow you down.
