‘After all, man is not a resoning animal; he is a seeing, feeling, contemplating, acting animal. He is influenced by what is direct and precise…Life is not long enough for a religion of inferences; we shall never have done beginning, it we determine to begin with proof…Life is for action. If we insist on proofs for everything,we shall never come to action; to act you must assume, and that assumption is faith.’
John Henry Newman, from ‘The Tamworth Reading Room’

The fir tree standing upright
on its shallow roots
like a ragged comedian,
a vagabond with splayed feet.
Roe deer tiptoe through
the tall gaps between
parallel trunks of pine
on pointed hooves that
ballerinas try to grow.
