A love in verse

In the Day

Performed by

Dear, the night’s long gone, the moon’s 

A refugee, the sun’s about

These many hours to come. 

Yet we’re together almost-doors

Thrown open – almost I may hear

Your breathing, you (not quite) my scribbling

And that’s unusual; day’s start and end

Are when we meet – how happy I

To see your radiance in the day’s.

The day shines and your eyes shine and these lights

Combine to show the planet at its best. 



The days would have been rainier

The dark sky never clear

If you’d gone to Tasmania...

The Handyman

If only energy would stay – 

Two fingers up to eighty-two – 

Because you’re ill I’d wait on you...
