Eight lines on you

For Hazel

00:00 / 00:33

Miraculous. Like Vaughan Williams’
fifth symphony at a time of war.
Love to cells. Helplessness to questions.
At each key change in you, one in me.

Beyond death’s reach, like a melody,
is the memory of our first day.
You have been my barlines ever since,
marshalling the music of my life.
