(18th July 1995 / Crescent Head)

Darkness.


Who is out there?
All I can see is black.
Why am I here?
Who will ever know?
Why am I the blood-red tulip amongst the darkness?
The single angel amongst demons.
The darkness is bleak,
I'm the only ray of hope.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
