A star weeps …

The modest moon hides her face

behind curtains of cloud.

A star weeps;

bleak night reigns –

there is no light, there is no love

in her cosmic kingdom.

Venus, brightest star,

dry your stellar eyes –

your undimmed light,

loving and tender,

will reach the waking world

with the incandescent splendour

of tomorrow’s sunrise … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
