Poetry: Love ; Relationships – DISTANCE

Letters from Yorkshire
“Our souls tap out messages across the icy miles”

When We Two Parted
“Half broken-hearted to sever for years”

Mother, Any Distance
“The line still feeding out, unreeling years between us.”

Walking Away
“How selfhood begins with a walking away, // And love is proved in the letting go.”

Winter Swans
“We skirted the lake, silent and apart”

When We Two Parted
“…after long years, How should I greet thee?// With silence and tears.”

Eden Rock
“They beckon to me from the other bank”

Eden Rock
” ‘Crossing is not as hard as you may think.’ “

Love’s Philosophy
“In one spirit meet and mingle // Why not I with thine?”

Walking Away
“It is eighteen years ago, almost to the day // A sunny day with leaves just turning”
