Bamburgh Bay

Bamburgh Bay ballad

I watched as you skipped and danced
Along the sand of Bamburgh Bay.
White birds flew above
Skimming waves along the way
I shouted out
You heard me not
Lost in some fairy dance
Stepped out in Bamburgh Bay.

Hair caught by sea breeze blow
Skirts swirling round and round
As white birds flew above
The wild and lonely shore
They shouted out
You heard them not
Lost in a cloud of sandy dust
Blowing over Bamburgh Bay

White birds flew In sky deep and blue
You stumbled as you almost lost a shoe
Gazing out to distant isles
Joyful tears clouded your eye
You shouted out
No one heard
‘Cept white birds of Bamburgh Bay.

Been born three months when Kennedy got shot Didn’t really recognize the significance From the comfort of my cot Didn’t know Vietnam was such a brouhaha Or that the world would not be at peace For at any one time

Spontaneous Frisco Bay

Spontaneous Frisco Bay prose poem

San Francisco Skyline Trembles and quakes with pinpricks of light, Throbbing multi-million galaxies of secret lives Ebbing and absorbing one another in the crisp California night Speeding towards the Mission in a rust bucket, Old Haggard hearse of jovial youth

Sabre Bay

Sabre Bay long poem

A gentle cough, a quiet word, a morning breeze, a waking bird, Into her box her letters fall, soft flip flop slippers down a hall, A radio plays yesterdays, and on the wall a clock face says That sometimes time
