Monthly poem - November 2018

EURYDICE AND ORPHEUS

I would make the journey down
jumping from stone to stone
on the slippery track
I would find you in that dark palace
crowned with watery stars
I would gather you up
all the bones and the flesh of you
in one slim volume
and never look back

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Adrian Mitchell

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
