to hand daughter mine
through autumn’s rustling talk
pass moss leaf cushions
under flat grayling sky
listening to cawing order


to hand daughter mine
cracking ice under footfall
notice mother hazel waking
winter lights the short day
walking to carwynnen quoit

to hand daughter mine
scrabbling on head first
top the daisy turf
knees crush green blades
explorers imagining magic moments

to hand daughter mine
harriet tryphena time traveller
believer in legend, myth
holder, my cornish dove
together at Carwynnen Quoit
