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 ...
Walk Gently Stranger
This old house is sad
Reflecting the flow
Of the itinerant folk
Who gave it life
But didn’t care enough
To stop it aging.
Layers of paper
Palimpsests on the walls
