ROUNDEL

The seagull sits and looks
far out over the sea
I look back, turn to find
your footprints following me
The seagull sits and looks
at what there is to see
Blue, white, sea and clouds
And you, following me
Waves break, the seagull looks
And waits for what I cannot see
But still your footprints carve the sand
And still you follow me

AT THE STATION

This morning, ghastly yellow,
the train howled past, into the fog,
another emerged from the depths
like a tree floating up from a bog.

Lights like gassy blobs in the murk,
People’s blurry silhouettes.
The ochre light of pre-dawn drifted
down in smoky pirouettes.
