Rookie (16th March 1943 / Portland, Dorset England)

A Time Before

The Island appeared from the parting mist
The cliffs rise from rocky broken bones
Surging tides of Eocene, laid waste
And cleansed this marbled artery of stone
On the cliff above, a gallery of cradled nests of lamps
White light for the wreckers moth,
Beneath the baleful eye
Rests the fishermen's windswept homes
Windows glow with warmth
