Invisible, your clocking tides
Break on the lovebeds of the weeds;
The weed of love's left dry;
There round about your stones the shades
Of children go who, from their voids,
Cry to the dolphined sea.



extract from
"Where once the Waters of your Face"
Dylan Thomas

fifi,

I'm very glad you stopped by my blog to comment, because it led me to your uniquely wonderful site.

You're an artist, an ocean-swimmer, a mother, a lecturer, and you write so beautifully...... talk about multi-faceted!

I'll definitely be back for more :)

Like all good poetry, moving and powerful yet totally ambiguous.

AND IT DIDN'T EVEN RHYME! "Oh, the humanity!"
