Rachael Charmley:

A beautiful poem.

Originally posted on johnpoetflanagan:

forty days of sugarless tea and dry bread
my ancestors served the time by the book
developing in dark rooms the faith and wonder pictures
children have in their souls
the jaded fresh again what was stolen returned

the shock and awe of robins warring in a hedge
terror outbursts of crows
the solemnity of rough hands spreading manure
on a birthing meadow
and slaps of whitewash on barn walls
the painting of The Milky Way

fifty years and a continental divide
i search my own denials at Changi Point
rust and dark oil goliaths and squat tugs
schooners and caravels of East India Company
sailing nutmeg and Moluccan clove down the channel
their jean and T-shirt crews decked out
in fussy ruffs and tricorns

whispers of old phrases heard too
in anxious buses and trains
wherever ordinary life pours
not asking analysis or reason
for the conscious hour

stick-and-carrot…
