This piece comes from the short cycle Down on the Farm which sets five pieces by New Zealand poets. The texts all deal with aspects of farming or typical farm landscapes. This piece (the second piece of the cycle) is a brief Ruth Dallas poem about the constantly changing colours of the flowers in a summer meadow.
