Treasure Island

(27th October 1942 to 'Not Yet! ' / London, Middlesex, England)

'Farewell Haiku'


Little Church nestling
Beside the River Camel
Sweet morning birdsong


Blackbird sings on graves
Saint Michael's Church Porthilly
Mother's favourite song

19 years ago we buried my Mother in the graveyard at St Michael's Church, Porthilly, a pretty little church built by the Normans in the 13th century, on the banks of the River Camel, just opposite Padstow. A sweet resting place.
