Extract from SEEN FROM THE TRAIN

By C. Day-Lewis 1947


Somewhere between Crewkerne

And Yeovil it was. On the left of the line

Just as the crinkled hills unroll

To the plain. A church on a small green knoll -

A limestone church

And above the church

Cedar boughs stretched like hands that yearn

To protect or to bless. The whole

Stood up, antique and clear

As a cameo, from the vale….
