Нов семестър/A new term

Somewhere up behind the pub
beside the roundabout, the road
dithers between cycle paths
and rattling cattle grids.

In the pre-dawn’s early light,
I’m hashing together lecture notes
and thoughts I might need to have
under transitional cloud cover

until here, with stumped old trees,
I should be at a loss. Not so –
I’m on this particular corner
of the road and over there,

like some well-placed opposite,
this reminder, pollarded from last year.
