U. A. Fanthorpe

Collected Poems 1978-2003, Peterloo Press.

The doves purr in the trees. The wild inmates

Of Stoke Park Mental Hospital next door

Shout their improper comments from barred windows.

Forsythia burns. Homely wallflowers breathe out

The smell of heaven. The nurses and the patients

Are taking tea in the deckchairs in the garden,

Under the trees, Depressives and obsessives

Call gaily to us as they play at croquet.

The epileptics doze off in the grass.

Caged in normality, we dumbly watch

From our dark office windows, feel that something -

Spring? or our sanity? - has let us down.
