James Phillip Mcauley Dark Poems
- 1. Winter Morning
Spring stars glitter in the freezing sky,
Trees on watch are armoured with frost.
In the dark tarn of a mirror a face appears.
Time is moving through displacements.
- 2. At A Child's Grave
A sky contused and rifted like a wound:
Red-amber gum exudes from the dark tree;
A long dayâ??s dying. Small anatomy
Locked in this nameless graveâ??s neglected mound,
- 3. Pieta
A year ago you came
Early into the light.
You lived a day and night,
Then died; no one to blame.
