End of a Norwich Day


I received an email yesterday, which told me that three submissions to a magazine had not been successful. The first of these was a reworked poem I posted last September.


The Norfolk sky expands,

Airy, pale and blue,

The city pavements fit

Like a comfortable pair of shoes

As I walk its easy streets,

Taking in familiar views.

From the top of Mousehold Heath

I can see the silhouette

Of the cathedral’s spire;

As the sun sets

The sky is full of fire.

Day admits defeat

And fades from sight;

Twilight tumbles darkly into night.
