3 April – Lamb therapy

The fields are thick with lambs now,
turning every walk into a treat –
you can barely tramp for five minutes
before hearing an excitable bleat.
As I stride across to the gate
three play chicken on the path,
standing stock still and staring,
then sprinting off as I pass.
Further up, in the sunshine,
others decide to nap,
snugging themselves right down
into the wool on mum’s back.
I dare anyone to see them
and not feel a lift in their mood –
a daily dose of cute sightings
does you the power of good!
