A Cultural Exchange - Poem by Diane Hine
A blue crane sailed from China to Rosyth with
a retinue of assemblers who stayed all through
springtime to help the huge steel bird straighten
its stiff and folded legs, find its feet and, in
early summer, plant them firmly ashore.
Every day from the dockyard, the crane’s view
of Scotland widened, until it encompassed
Broomhall House, the ancestral home of the
eleventh Earl of Elgin.
If the blue crane had cared to peer into the
peer’s windows, it might have met the oriental
stare of a courtly pair of bronze cranes; brethren
of a sort, since they’d also sailed from China
a century and a half earlier.
From the crane’s eye what’s more, the assemblers
saw Lord Elgin’s ripening field of yellow-blossomed
rape and, fancying a brew, planned a sortie
and herbal-tea party after work.
But poor Lord Elgin was peeved when he saw the
assemblers dipping into his yolk-yellow crop and told
them so in plain English. Of course they couldn’t
understand him or pretended not to, so he
shrugged it off and chuckled, ‘Tit-for-tat’.
Tit-for-tat for what?
Well, for the deeds of his great-grandfather,
the eighth Earl of Elgin. No, not the one who liked
collecting marbles; that was the seventh Earl.
The next one, who sailed to China in 1860; the
one who looted a courtly pair of bronze cranes,
sanctioned the rape of Yuánmíngyuán, razed the
Gardens of Brightness and Eternal Spring, and
burnt every palace therein.
Tit-for-tat for that.
