Poetmother Intrigue


Sensing signs
of her own sadness
in her son,
Poetmother,
to save the boy
from the exigencies,

and rancour
that beset her own endings,
and might even
see him choose to become a banker,
taught intrigue amongst all things
as salve,
and hoped to be spared,
to see how he fared.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
