A Landscape

Although now I turn
and walk away
(this region is not known to me),

there is something about the bulge of hills,
the dark winter woods
thrown across them like bear pelt,

the hump of moorland
bumping against the leaden belly
of the low clouds.

Although now I turn and walk away,
there is a feeling of longing,
a strange sense of homecoming.
