    Bernard, I am a poet myself, and I enjoyed your poems, they remind me of Yates and Heaney, but in a more Christian way. I have often had an idea to write a study of Catholic poetry. I often think we have lost a tradition that included both Dante and in Modern times Gerard Manly Hopkins. Your work is like a bridge. I would love to hear your response to this

    Short, spare, arresting piece with plenty of word magic. (Walker) Superb, in my opinion.

Joseph-The Father

A dream of the father, and
now, in dream of Joseph,
a new dream ' mind the woman,
and the child',
and Joseph listening,
in silence, hermit like,
to the dream of dreams,
the mother and father of dreams,
takes care,
