Treasure Island

Sally Plumb Plumb

(23 9 1940 / Haverhill Suffolk England)

Angels


Kitty blue dress,
princess of sorrow,
died today,
will live tomorrow
in her heaven of known belief
all her life. Sad time's a thief.

Angels are crossing
the light of night.
Soon they will settle
on a naked bed,
two white bodies
with feathered arms
come to secure their passive dead.

    This poem passes my WOW test! Moment to moment I was a complete believer in the events unfolding. There is such gentleness in the way your angels minister to our human needs. I love the image of angels crossing the
    light of night - it's a wonderful paradox which would be spoiled by further definition. Angels play a BIG ROLE in 20th c. Poetry. Rafael Alberti wrote about angels as terrifying. I admire his visionary poetry but right now I feel perfectly at one with your angels. (Report) Reply

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
