Thomas Golding Poems
A Word About Love
How light the space when you're all near
A flight of swans across an evening sky
Who wheel and turn with grace before descent
To mirrored lakes for lovers to admire.
If you loved yourselves as lovely as you are
Then pursuit of love would never cause you pain
Which I share when the world turns away
Unable at times to say what I might feel.
Recall the words of Propertius
'Love could recall beauty where none was.'
When you took up these lowly creatures
Reason called you were still embracing frogs.
Know I love you all in my own way
Even when you ...
The Hills Remain
The hills remain as yesterday
dark, light in between
water cascades down the cliffs
birds feed near the edge
I stood there once
but will not do so again.
Only recall the mist in the valleys
creeping up the slopes
