Blue

Forget me not blue

As an Alaskan blueberry:

Endurance is a flower

A bulb in winter’s depth

A rare-repeated wonder:

A sin we must forget.

In this-world-of-my-creation

In this world-of-make-believe:

Cancer, the death of children,

Are falling autumn leaves.

…….

I see a road before me

A road I walk in vain

A road through Trawden, Lancashire

A road that’s not the same.

All roads lead to heaven

And all roads lead to you

And all these roads are empty

Of eyes of deepest-blue.

………

I loved the rainy mornings of my life

And I never thought that friendly mountain passes

Would ferry me away, like this,

But now happy times are seldom

And the rain runs away with me.

From holiday beach to tempestuous sea

The thunder clouds gather like swarms of angry bees

I have lost my faith in the indomitable sea.

And I have lost my faith in humanity

I sing only one song now.

………

O! the mechanical movement of the sun

Sunshine blooms and nectar spreads

Like a tender, living tree

Covering all that’s dappled, fair, free

Like a changeling in the ocean

Like the mermaids in the sea, and unlike me.
