The Orcadian Poet

The Orcadian Poet

 (for GMB)

  

He said ‘I am what is around me’

He said ‘ the life of everyone is unique and mysterious’

He said ‘the immortal diamond’

 

The immortal diamond

 

Our grandfathers were cobblers

We both loved the sea

We drank-although he drank whisky

 

The immortal diamond

Lies under the accumulation

Of boredom and drift

 

Love is just spindrift

Love is a tall tale

Love is chimeric

 

The immortal diamond sparkles through the haar

 

He helps me light the witch-fires

He restores my health

He changes the past tense into the present
