The Complete Bearded Stranger

The poem below is from “The Complete Bearded Stranger” a collection published in 1984 and dedicated to Susan’s husband; Simon Williams


Yew lays on my crown
Two sun warmed dense feather hands;
A confirmation.

Touch of rain on a harebell;
The flower drum song.

On sunburnt highways
Poppies burst into being,
Bright sears of blood.

The dragon autumn
Has his tongue among the trees,
Leaves begin to burn.

Like unshaded lamps
In the sudden gusts of wind
Chased roses blow out.

A gentle juggler
Spinning clouds of light crystal,
Spirits the path white.
