A love in verse

Away on Tour

Performed by

Darkness is tumbling from the flies

And fills the gloomy wings

Your backstage lover sits and sighs

Remembering many things

The thousand hours we’re apart

The few we are together

Loneliness – your lover’s heart

Almost beyond its tether

The leading actor loud on stage

Impresses in his part

I do mine for a weekly wage

And not for love of art



Scattered in the garden under a cold sky

Pockets of primrose, bunched up and brave;

Leafless in late March the tree...

An Ideal Husband

I feel my life blessed by your love 

I sit here in a radiant sun

Reminded of you, warmth above...
