Heart

Heart poem pic

I trace my roots with the beat of my heart
It counts the living rings of time and not the dead wood of selective history
It hammers remembrance
Of a girl with red-gold hair
Who led me hunting adders in the forest

For Georgina, a New Forest gypsy, who died of pneumonia in 1973, aged 15
