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
