Caladur: Hermitage…


…Before long Ewan emerged from the dark wood

to find himself standing in an open grove of silver birches…

Beyond the grove ran a stream, burbling,

and beyond the stream was a bank with great beeches on it.


Ewan left the forest path and crossed the stream

to where the ground rose higher and higher

leaving the beeches behind

he came to a small lawn

cut before a cliff-face of red sand.


In the cliff-face he spied two steps,

and a doorway and two windows carved,

like the door and windows of a church,

and he knew it to be a hermitage…
