A love in verse

New Year’s Day

Performed by

Gulls weave against grey sky

Winter daylight starts to die

Tree lights wink: wind is cold

But the hearth fire’s growing bold

Warming chestnuts, cats and room 

Whilst the TV glints in the gloom – 

Secure against the world and weather

All the Gordons watch together. 


Ever Young

I’ve never thought of you as less than young

Though things concern you – imagined lines, maybe

White veins among your hair’s dark ore...

Good Morning

When you’re putting on the second shoe

Time’s getting on but not too late

And a lovely voice call up to you...
