Ceinwen E Cariad Haydon



yellow dandelions
thrilled our summer walks
my world fresh-painted
through your infant eyes
their blue sparkle sang forget-me-nots
as you grew and toddled
kicked autumn leaves aside
to pick up copper-polished conkers
on our woodland wanderings

winds blow chill these days
the sunshine     semi-skimmed
frets damp and dim
and beckons my long sleep

you take my arm
and we stroll towards the gate
where we must part
