Meadow Brown

On sunny days she?s always on the wing

dusky brown    autumn brown

she delights in open ground

 

She?s agile over hedge and scrub

cocoa brown    mocha brown

she delights in open ground

 

How fast she flies in upland meadows

brindle brown    bracken brown

she delights in open ground

 

She skims the moorland and the downs

fuscous brown    fawn brown

she delights in open ground
