Maiden Castle

Maiden Castle

rampart and ditch
unseen against grey skies
layers of earth skin
patrolled by sheep

contoured channels
false entrances blind
alleys death traps
sides sharp and steep

arrows tumbling
as cold as rain
bossed cloud shields
protecting the sun heart

blood-red the egg yolk
life’s universal centre
