Treasure Island

Geoffrey Grigson

(2 March 1905 – 25 November 1985 / Pelynt, Cornwall)

Two Are Together


Two are together, I tell you,
A slope of a vowel, are a corner;
Grass short as a garden,
Bracken
Uncoiling,
Foxgloves, water
Descending,
Quartz in a stone.

This corner:
Mountain-ash (ferns
Up in air).
Then over an edge
This single
Blue wedge of a mountain;
This comfort, you tell me,
Contentment,
Compassion.

This wild-mint-scented scene
And wild roses
And wrinkle of water descending
Tending to laughter;
Together, then
After.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
