The Heron At Hardwater by Jamie Poole (JOHN CLARE POEM AUTUMN)

Below is the poem this card is based on. You can even read parts of the poems in the card.

This is a collage artwork based on the poem by Northamptonshire Artist John Clare (1793-1864) called 'Autumn'. Jamie has made this artwork after visiting Hardwater Mill in the Nene Valley Northamptonshire. This 'painting' was made using the printed words of the poem with his collage technique known as 'text painting'. Words were cut, torn and layered to evoke the beauty of the wildlife and countryside surrounding his home in the United Kingdom.

Autumn

BY JOHN CLARE
The thistledown's flying, though the winds are all still, 
On the green grass now lying, now mounting the hill, 
The spring from the fountain now boils like a pot; 
Through stones past the counting it bubbles red-hot. 
 
The ground parched and cracked is like overbaked bread, 
The greensward all wracked is, bents dried up and dead. 
The fallow fields glitter like water indeed, 
And gossamers twitter, flung from weed unto weed. 
 
Hill-tops like hot iron glitter bright in the sun, 
And the rivers we're eying burn to gold as they run; 
Burning hot is the ground, liquid gold is the air; 
Whoever looks round sees Eternity there.
