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
