Hedging by Bernie Jordan




On the edge of the road

a neat cut hedge;

beyond a statue,

Stone ground guard


With rifle black against darkening sky.


Ploughed terrain

picture perfect with poppies

lies in uneasy peace.

The sound of a lark is tonic for torn memory.


I remember the dead beneath my feet

And move on into life.
