Looking into Moravia

By the windmill of Retz
Don Quixote and Pancho
Paused to admire the view
And were suddenly turned
Into old metal scrap

Doorknobs and chains
Shovels and spades
A boiler on wheels
A gate

Horseshoes and nails
Nuts bolts and screws
Hinges and brackets
Milk churn and axes
And rust.


  1. Again wonderful rhythms Gwilym.

    And you are taking us on a wonderful tour of countries just now.

  2. Thank you Gordon. I tried to get the sense of the windmill slowly turning. The sculpture in situ is really made from all the junk I've listed.
