Around Campfires It Is Still Told How Two People Could Be So Bold - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Covered only by stars
we camped out all night

firelight flickering
over our nakedness

we are only shadow & light
shadow & light.

The moon has fallen asleep
in a tree.

Birds dream of morning.

We lie together yawning

lost in the wilds
of our own backgarden.

Here
an everywhere

covered only with love

Oh! What will the neighbours say!
