Monthly poem - November 2019


Time of spiders
Rose hips
Wet leaves
Red lips.

Woolen jumpers unfolding their sleeves
The comfort of blanket stitch
The heather and sea colours in the weave
I will not die in a ditch.

The woolsack in the House of Lords
The search for the Golden Fleece
Parliament on its bended knees
Praise for the working woman’s elbow grease.
