Merry Christmas | Peter Matthews

Misty morning clothed in snow

Huddled up with miles to go

Checking sheep out on the moors

Leaving family safe indoors

Man and dog go striding forth

West, then South, then East, then North

Every compass point between

Making sure all sheep are seen

A shepherdโ€™s work is never done

Merry Christmas everyone!
