After Christmas.


I was born in this room
Changed now but familiar
The fireplace made redundant
By the gurgling radiators
Still stood stubbornly waiting
for the crackle of logs
and the smell of wood smoke
~
Memories come easy
In these dog December days
Church bells at evensong
A cackle of Crows in the high Elms
Sheep fat with new life
Gossiping in the nursery pastures
and Mother singing Si mi chiamano mimi
~
I cross to the window
Looking out to the unchanging
view of my childhood
Soft in the after light of day
Thinking of the New Year
That will capture the sunset of my youth
And my starting line to middle age
~
Simon proposed for the third time
At the dance in October
Married life and family at Long Acre
But the crush of my dreams
I pressed my nose to the windowpane
As the moon gathered small clouds
and my tears set the night wind flying.
Authors note.
A poem from the feminine view, it seemed to suite the content better.
