A love in verse

It’s All Here

Performed by

I’m back

Facing red Victorian brick and wet slate roofs

Little dear things the kids have given grace my space

I’m tired but alive and in love

Reality starts here

With the strange peace of calling streets

And muffled movement in the house

And singing

All trust, all heaven:

Behind, the bed I made, you laid in

Your presence through the rooms. 

Your feet on the stair. 


Joy That Survives

Why would I wish I were twenty years younger?

Was 1997 so great?

And even though it's getting late...

Leaves Hold Fast

You see the leaves that fall in autumn – 

Each one’s a dream that’s died

Of love, achievement, each a post mortem...
