The Watercolour and the Oil

20121229-065607.jpg

Lake District as a painting:
envisioning watercolours,
pretty, pastoral pastels,
a place for peaceful lovers.

Innocently beguiling
the rambling nature seeker,
for those jutting crags
can fell those less meeker.

Snowdonia as a picture:
brushed and layered in heavy oils,
so oppressive and ominous,
walking the land is to toil.

What appear to be mountains
are really sleeping dragons –
watch your English footsteps
they protect local Welshmen.

Beauteous nature’s two scenes
appear so contrasting:
one charming, one threatening,
yet both ultimately arousing.
