about

For Bardy 28th May 2017

lyrics

The crow tears bark from the fallen bough
To nest Easter and young
The poet tears words from the flesh of now
To wrest creature unsung

Hearing, hearing, willow wind flailing
Wherever we are, we are
Gentle a soul open to threshing
Readies the way with care

Return of those that were taught to fly
Now learn to fledge again
Not ill-prepared such babes will cry
With joy in bearing pain

Treasure from such tender loss
Settles on who remain
Well lived secures the path across
Good life... good death in train
