voyaging

Le cimetière de bâteaux du Bono

 

For years we’ve

come remembering

your voyaging here

long before us and

we hear the gulls

laughing and admire

the industry of

oystercatchers and

the youth of shiny

new acorns as we

note that the comings

and goings of the

tides across your

venerable oak boughs

are quietly returning

you to the ground of

your origins just as

year by year they are

returning us too and

the serenity here

though poignant

holds us in peace
