What my father did for me........


Days of My Father



Tell me how water magnified the surfaces of leaves or skittered off.

How it spilled from tiles, gargled along gutters,

dropped into echoing butts.

How earth absorbed and hoarded it in lightless caves,

returned it at springs where women left offerings.


Talk about cumulus, cirrus, stratus,

and watching thunderheads approach: how light

thickened from gold to green; how water felt

slipping down cheeks to dusty lips; of cycling

in a yellow oilskin tent, head bent against the sting.


Describe brollies, wellies, puddles and the smell

of dampened soil; how you would hunt for

newts, pick meadow-sweet, try to spot sundew

trapping flies. Explain drizzle, scattered showers, cats-and-dogs.

Please, before we burn, tell me about rain.
