My friend Ivor is such a wonderful poet … and he seems to always be on the same wavelength as me, even though he’s in Australia and I’m in Wisconsin in the States…
His gift to me — a reaction to my blog Faerie Paths — Quilts:
Thank you, my friend.
A Quilt, For A Good Man
A quilt, made by hand.
Definitely for a man.
Bold and beautiful.
But again, I was a fool.
A quilt for lonely nights.
Definitely made for a cool moonlight.
Patterns of music notes and instruments.
But a gift, not Mozart’s 1st movement.
A quilt, reminds me constantly.
Definitely not unpleasantly.
Like winter leaves, grey and black.
And again, there’s no turning back.
