Brooch Found at Redcar


Redcar, a hinterland,
unlandmarked coast of sand,

flat sea, small dunes, but yonder,
in un-grassed Saxon graves,

a brooch, a bullion find,
worked gold, red stone, a wonder

of burnished art. A hand
might hold the contraband

that gives back to this town
twelve centuries of depth

in such fine contour. Found,
truth's road we can go down,

marauding yarls behind
the quiet field around.
