“Doppler Descending

Inspiration piece

Myfanwy Fox

This sun-splashed Severn pool
descends to other worlds
where caddis larvæ lie
as eels slip, lithely splicing
silted alder roots.

Over many months glass eels
journey from their spawnings,
distant in the Sargasso Sea,
nursed on the Gulf Stream.

Elvers fatten twenty years
on nightly farmland foraging,
evading otter, mink and heron;
ready, silver-ripe, moon-eyed,
to re-cross the Atlantic.
