Sue Leigh Poetry

Air

 

What would it sound like

a composition for chalk country –

 

a simple tune played on a pipe

the brightness of the fiddle

 

a lone voice

 

(a man who walk the ways

in a coat the colour of the earth)

 

and the words –

a folk song or ballad

 

I can’t catch them,

the wind
