Water


WATER

Silver
Clear
Satin seal
The top
Drop
Laugh
Laugh
Icy cheer
Never
Never
Stop
Downward
Onward
Over
Go
Fullness oceans swelling
Oceans slowly booming
Deep
Moody
Sullen
Sullen Sleep
Seething
Foaming
Broken glass
Moon and wind to blast
Muddy puddles
In the gate
Footprint cups to lap
Dripping warm
November days
Mist
Rain
Leaky tap


Egal Bohen - 1970


This was the first poem I ever wrote and on reflection I am pleased that it was about something, without which, our lives could not  happen..
