Dreams On New Year's Eve

This dwarfish golem strengthened the chem in
her heart today, having worked on the chem in
her head for so long and ending up with a still-
born life in which challenge and adventure had
no place except in the books she read

She took time off from being hard-working and
cross, sang her way through the day ‘But some-
where in my wicked, miserable past, there must
have been something good' - then discovered a
Princess on TV and became one also

A film about dreams coming true on New Year's
Eve and this Golem knew hers had come true also,
Golem dreams are small, you see, it does not take
much to make a Golem glad and being of dwarfish
persuasion the lovely dreams are short enough

Tomorrow dark passages will get translated again
using trichonometry to measure the angles of every
term, climbing on trees to get her bearings, compare
with previous documents on the same subject,
weaving her tortuous way back and forth

Determined to surprise her boss with a consistent
translation text - the ultimate fulfilment of Golem

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
