Three Poems by Amanda Niamh Dawson

 



Soul’s Flight

 

Take flight

In the light

Fly ‘til night

 

We’ll be 

Watching for you

When you land

 

In a stand

Of fairy beings

The all-seeing

Carbon columns

To keep you safe

Tucked in tight

 

 

Nature’s Art

 

Divine design

Hill in winter

Sublime sunshine

Voices whisper

Loves lost here

Creatures scamper

Bounty is dear

Heal your fear

Drawing near

The time of sight

Truest night

 

 

History Holds

 

Deities alight

Into a night

Shimmering bright

 

Lit from within

Iridescent limbs

 

Brimming sighs

Creatures so wise

 

Centuries do hold

The genius of old
