‘WISH’ BY HELEN IVORY

Filed under: poetry — Tags: , , , , , — namelessneed @ 10:15 am

“Talk soft to me,

talk gently as the night

shuffles its papers

in high offices and hilltops.

 

Talk low like cattle,

breathe hay-scented words

and I will show you the book

kept inside my coat,

 

already learnt by heart

by the nightjars that churr

to each other before daylight

setting the darkness home.”

Ending An End Chapter

 

 

 

 

 

If there would be woods where

Where  in a light clearing  inside

One could hear a pen drop  symphony

I’d see to it  I’d go back to it

I’d go back to a lower

Low key.

.

Sure, I can, and her, end an end chapter here

Here where sugarcane flourishes

Where swamp orchid garnishes

What you see

(Or maybe  maples run sweeter for her and me)

.

He’d hoped they’d elope to  low profile

In fact, go back to a lower

Low profile.
