Reflection on Wednesday
The bay of Cascais looks beautiful today
calm blue sea and sky a rare summer appearance in December.
A big bulk-carrier is waiting for the pilot, as a red-cross helicopter
comes onto view landing on the deck of the bulk-carrier one
of her crew is ill.
When the noise of the chopper dies down, I think
of yesterday when I wrote two poems which left
me feeling sad and tired, these poems were
probably the best I would ever write, but they will
be read by the few and vanish in the dust of time.
