At the moment I am working on a new book of my verses, but it is proceeding slowly. Unlike many writers, I cannot simply sit down and write every day, but only when my muse is in the mood.
During these unsteady times, I've written about twenty-five new poems; not quite enough to warrant a new book yet, but I’d like to share a little teaser poem with you … a sample of things to come.
His adept eyes are searching
As he sits within the grove
In his mind he holds an image
Of a certain herb. Behold!
There it is, as if in answer,
So his ready legs unfold
Rising up he gently gathers
Only one of manyfold
Then prepares a precious poultice
With a touch of Marigold
For his sweetheart who was wounded
When she clumsily let go
Of the arrow she was aiming
Towards him but an hour ago.
