THE CALLING OF THE LIGHT
Imposing columns, like revered immortal trees
lead the eye
from dark history when kings and queens
were wed and laid to rest,
upward to the transcendent light
aglow with ageless majesty.
Quietly sitting on the cool green lawn
studying the abbey’s lace-like silvery stone.
I have been here before
in a past century, in a bygone life.
THE CLOISTER AT WESTMINSTER ABBEY
“Yes! I am the girl from the colonies.”
No solace here.
Only unquestioned conceit
speaking with unyielding dominance
to the naive young girl that I was then.
BIG BEN ON A CLOUDY DAY
Like an oversize grandfather clock,
it faces the four corners of the land.
It’s full-bodied voice marks the pace of the hour,
a resounding symbol of immutability.
When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life;
for there is in London all that life can afford.
