Friendship [relit]


I sit with you, both of us
in deep and dark and underground
and we prod things with sticks
and I prod your heart.

They say you don’t know your best friend until you sit with them in a deep dark place
and until you see the colour drain from their face and the fire in their heart extinguish. Never
forget the day that I got to know you better and
despite the day
being horrible, you were lovely again
and that’s all that matters.
Coloured and
relit
once more.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
