* Final Farewell - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

The long hot summer draws to a close
the nights draw in as winter approaches
thus ends my final summer in this place

the colonial country of my birth my homeland.
Shadows shifting the final Easter here I promised
my parents will soon be departure time upon us.

Echo of champagne cock echo into eternity.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written in March 2003 on the 25.3.2003.

On the 9th of March 2015 I found a diary with a few poems from 2003 in it. As I only had 3 poems from 2003 previously extant, I will add a few of these extra dozen poems online over the next few days. They may not be very good, they will differ from later and contemporary poems, but they are part of lost origins, among the hundreds of poems lost in my moving and travels. 'Written Upon The Palm' and 'Dance Lonely Nights Away' I found a few days ago.

The 3 poems I had posted on my poemhunter.com site Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light) while living in Jakarta Indonesia were: -
