Best Poem of Hugh Mitchell

One For Sorrow; Two For Joy

Good morning Mr Magpie
alone again, like me
I greet you then I bless myself
and hope that I shall see
your lady busy in the trees
up here in Jagger Green.









The wind is soft and urgent
on the pale green Yorkshire hills
rooks fuss in high bare branches
looking down on silent mills
and the magpie is a single bird
up here in Jagger Green.

I watched him as he rested
in the Mayday morning light
then hard and low and straight there came
another flash of black and white
and the sun is like a woman's kiss
up here ...

Lost And Found

I am that black inevitable sock
stuck undiscovered to the back
rim of your wash-machine -
know what I mean?

I am the undetected greasy spoon
emerging soon
as your wash-up water swills away -
frustrating, eh?
