Summer Linen


Walk out the past
Across a field
Of evening grass
Through a gate
With tangled briar
Sunset fire
Straw hat bound
With a ribbon band
Summer linen
My mum's hand
Stooks of corn
A teepee made
Where brothers ran
There brothers played
Long shadows
Pointing to the dawn
Across the railway lines
To Boxford House
(From memory drawn)


Egal Bohen
