Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Child Of Mist


Returned
to Christchurch in 83

a toy town
matchbox city

after Melbourne.


New Zealand
is like that
not yet ready
to grow up.


Yet sometimes

the eyes
of a child

see through mist

to save a world.

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
