'Farewell Haiku' - Poem by Res John Burman

Little Church nestling
Beside the River Camel
Sweet morning birdsong

Blackbird sings on graves
Saint Michael's Church Porthilly
Mother's favourite song
Copyright © Res JFB 14th May 2010

19 years ago we buried my Mother in the graveyard at St Michael's Church, Porthilly, a pretty little church built by the Normans in the 13th century, on the banks of the River Camel, just opposite Padstow. A sweet resting place.
Rest in Peace Olive Eva ~ Much Love
