Yellow Warning

sky melts
pelts and helter skelts
roads river
drains spout streamspit
surge and gutterspill
down down down

now soilsilt slithers
fields edge under hedge
fillditch flowthick
redrun clayslips
sheen and sheet

waterrope Axe
roars in narrows
before the burst
to swallowgollop up the lane
drowns tarmac and tramline
makes meadows lakes
cows kneedeep it
by sudden swans
