More of you


I want to give more than I can

All those years without you

The baked grass of my childhood

And the nights in red and black

It comes with wanting more of you

The yous that I can never meet

Samson hair and fresh-eyed grin

You as you are now

With all you were then

    Truer words were never spoken by a poet about poets, I think. Don’t we always?
    And ‘the baked grass of my childhood’ is such a wonderful, evocative image. Baked by time, or what has happened since…..?

    I do hope you will consider my invitation (did you see it?)–and no pressure–just want to make sure that you were aware of it. I think you have a real talent and I really feel that you would fit in and we would love to have you take part.

    And if not? Totally ok, too. I will continue to enjoy the work that you post here.
