CHESTER WALLS, a poem by Maureen Weldon

 

 CHESTER WALLS

 

Warm evening

tranquil greens (freshly mown)

beneath King Charles Tower.

 

Midges dance through a bangle of sun

now dipping gold on distant Welsh hills.

Beneath me pink blossom and new-leafed trees.

 

I stand on the old Roman Walls

alone and not alone

sucked in a bliss of ages past.

 

As the last birds sing in the twilight air,

the Evening Star winks her knowing eye.
