Comments about Christian Allen
The Book Keeper
The Book Keeper, smells of ashes and cherry wood,
Of pipes and tinder, and of things ancient and grey.
His beard is a forest, of thick white hair,
Even it has seen things, that I haven’t.
The Book Keeper, with eyes of amber,
Knows what to say when I am lost, he knows.
The Book Keeper, I hear, never says where he’s from.
But I will know, when he speaks to me, tonight, I will know.
The Book Keeper, loves his books, as his children.
With the utmost kindness, he sorts them, again, and again.
He cleans them, studies them, comforts them, again, ...
As If I Shouldn'T Have
My memories churn, and run and work.
Of the time I met you by the brook.
You, dressed for summer’s sake.
I, a man with a wife to take.
My shoes are cold, my sweet, smothering.
Yet the late summer sun, is determined,
To win from me, my back.
