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


Last Day of the Month

The first day of the rest of our life 

For which with you the best summing up

Is pain, joy, love, a little strife...

Signing On

Sitting  in the labour 

Where no-one’s very pally 

I try to love my neighbour...
