Another response to dVerse Poets Pub Tuesday Poetics: Summer Starter
I thought I’d give Walter’s prompt another go. This time I have chosen ‘Summer Solstice’ by Carrie Richards and have incorporated a line from an old poem of mine.
When the whole world measured time
In light and dark,
Stonehenge was brand new
One drab June,
When rain soaked prehistoric mounds,
We wandered round the ancient grounds,
Counting a nursery rhyme of stones,
Imagined the breaking of a new dawn
And shadows pierced by shafts of light,
The zenith after midsummer night.
