Poem

 

I let the clocks run down

to stop you leaving

to stop time stealing you

         goddess of longing

 

you ran from animal jaws

I ran to let you shiver

here in my arms

         golden with longing

 

sparrows impatient to fly

branches of snow-ruined trees

clocks that lifted their faces

         late and longing

 

we knew & let it go

we hovered away & back

we had one design

         belonging
