Selected Poems from Small Poems

Love is gentle

Love is kind

Love is cruel

Love is blind


I ask my love what shall we do?

You fell for me and I for you

Hurry! Past the cherry tree
flowering in tthe cut, the window
box and birdsong, the spring
grass and children playing, the
old men gossiping in the coffee
shop. You must hurry! You

don't know what you're missing.


the rain stops,

a torrent

of birdsong!


Repairing the fence,

I am joined by the robin

the wren and the blackbird


each has an opinion on

what I should be doing.

I pretend not to listen


head on my pillow

eyes open, eyes closed,


I stare into the darkness

looking for sleep
