The Moors Man.
by Jemma Hawtrey
Age Group: Adult
The Moors Man.
I watched your pass just once alone; rain bespattered
And saw one whose youth’s beauty had flown,
But to whom it had never mattered;
Something never lost is never missed
And never shown is never kissed?
You caught my eye and watched me – hawk like
‘til the rub of brake on tired wheel of ancient bike
Distracted me thence to such mundane things
As phone that blats & bleeps or kettle sings; and thence,
Back I looked you passed school’s rusted swings
And passed from me behind some other’s fence
And never did I see again the old; of the life long lost
Walking, bent over through the cold; a person who;
In history tossed – has lost all that he has known
So much he knows the ways to do; yet not needed now
So never shown ‘til the moors man’s time has flown
Until at some future time the call will rise; how?
In past my friend are seeds of future sown
And past is soon enshrouded in times dark gown – long gone
That ancient town of tale and song
And the knowledge in those old eyes
It’s lost to us, its grounded habit flown
Resides now in churchyard, blossom blown.
