Best Poem of Bryan Stanley Johnson

Conditions Of Living

Living a whole life has three conditions:
absorbing work which demands and brings fulfilment,
a group of friends with whom to excahnge minds,
and a full love to be lost in all the time.

Of these I have the easier two,
but lack the third in lacking you.

Evening: Barents Sea

The trawl of unquiet mind drops astern

Great lucid streamers bar the sky ahead
(bifurcated banners at a tourney)
light alchemizes the brass on the bridge
into sallow gold
          now the short northern
autumn day closes quickly
