Memories Availing


Press upon me full length
fair loins flailing
know me now
marriage vows
trailing
and I
know both
the pain
and joy of it.

Press upon me
your marriage lips
that I might kiss
and enter that
trembling orifice
breathing.


Plant within me
now
a child
to grow
womb expanding
to share
our life.

Hold me close
in times of joy
and sorrow
lay down
we two
midst
snow storm
and blowing gale
around us.

Press upon me
that leathered
hand
grown old
from loving
and I shall place
mine
in yours
Memories
Forever
Availing.

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.
