A love in verse

Rose Arrives

Performed by

From depth of bed to springing step

(The stick discarded on the way)

From enforced tiredness to pep

My Rose arises bright as day

Leaving behind alluring night

Into the morning’s joy she moves

Setting the very sun alight

Her proud arising proves:

That human heroes, born again 

Will never fade away

They smash through obstacles and then

Like Allie, seize the day! 


Strange Summers

Strange summers, sometimes, heavily imbued

With music of uncertain pitch, have come

As we have laboured in the luxury...


Already I’ve forgotten what you wore

Sunday, standing by the fridge; it was black,

And your arm supported the broom...
