Biography of Ellen Devilliers

I am a university lecturer living and working in France with my family and partner. Renewed contact with a long-lost-friend-now-turned-partner has enabled me to put some of my deepest feelings into words, for which I am tenderly grateful. I have no pretensions about them, they stand uniquely for myself and hopefully to be shared by others.

Enjoy.

My Father’s Hands.

'Hold on to my hands.'

My father’s gentle hands,
Worn by work, a craftsman’s hands
Tapering fingers, an artist’s hands
Were those I watched with fascination
Were those that held mine, a child’s hands,
Washed by them with such attention.
