A Glad Time We Had Of It 2 August 2006

While the sentiment could equally apply to Continuum, from which I have still not really recovered, I think the latest of David’s poems, takes a rather different direction!

*A Glad Time We Had Of It*
A glad time we had of it,
the sun beating down on us
but with mercy’s breeze
at the church.

To walk waving across from
home to there, with her
on my arm, a father and daughter
at their closest, so unlike a losing.

Such surroundings!
The prayers of the years,
the inbreak of the uncontainable,
the smiles of down to earth love.

We talked
of how we will always talk about it.
In coldness and in heat,
in companies or in pairs,
we’ll savour the day.
(C) David Grieve 2006
