A love in verse

Owning the World

Performed by

In terms of worldly achievement, no,

Not an impressive report to make:

Like, nothing published, whilst long ago

His acting hopes burnt at the stake

(Not even the ashes left.) He looks

Round at a bed behind him there

And sees a world of love – the books

He didn’t write cause him no care – 

For there his love sleeps gently curled

Cat at her feet cleaning its face

He knows at once he owns the world

His life is bigger than all space. 


The Wind

Peter stands, Alison stands

This is the story of our life

They stand together holding hands...

St David’s Day

My daffodil, my leek, my love

My asphodel, she-dragon, you

Are green of all below, above...
