Picasso in Chiddingly

Picasso stood beside a finger
signpost showing three ways
to places from a raised island
of rough grass & wheeled ruts
as if caught painting in a beret
& brumal layers – wool-clothed
for changing English elements
He was marooned – Crusoe’d in
Muddles Green contemplating
CHIDDINGLY – raised up in iron
under others – GOLDEN CROSS
& LAUGHTON – places reduced
to state GOLD LAUGH by Pablo
