(11.12.1949 / Limerick, Ireland)

From in the womb


From in the womb of dim and vague lights
to the blinding action of sun-filled days;
to the blinding action of sun-filled days.

Hop and step -
you realize that you have jumped
only 30 years later.

Maybe, that is why they say
that life begins at forty!

To the billowing action of sun-filled days;
to the billowing action of sun-filled days.

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
