Not yet spring

Last weekend the temperatures here in Fife dropped from 18C to 2C overnight. It snowed again in the hills, and for several days we have been shivering in blasts of arctic air flows – the last gasp of winter: the lambing snows.

The third of my poems for the #Cateran100 project is now up online: https://soundcloud.com/user-557410710/not-yet-spring-by-larissa-reid

It was written as I sat shivering in ‘my’ writing hut (a bird hide) in the Glen Tilt woods, last May.
