15 June: A Byr a Thoddard Poem

a horse drawn carriage with three people

Feels Like A Warm Stone

It’s the one I always think of – as home.
That house of childhood
Where distance was a horizon
And the bedsheets breathed my return.

    1. I’ll watch for it…


  2. oh yes! those last 2 lines are superb. Well the whole thing is but it was the last 2 lines that made my brain sing. Like Ron, I might have to research the form.


  3. Like this a lot – being a fan of brevity – the dash in the first line is clever – adding to the sound as well as the meaning. Also the waltz. Had me dancing round the lounge room (almost)


    1. Free those feet, and dance. And thank you.
