Two Poems

Barbara Dearnley


The late sun flames my dying Autumnal tree,

And I know afresh why painters

Fall in love with light and colour.

Indoors that same red November sun

Suffuses my sill-sleeping ginger tom

Transforming his grubbiness into

Shining luscious gold red fur

Inviting a loving sensual touch

An urge to paint, to capture

For grimmer greyer winter days

The solace of that glorious blaze

September 1990, p. 11: B. K. Dearnley (2014). Poems. (Private/limited publication)

Poetry Limited

Wretched muse

Gone missing again.

Not even a jingle in the packet.

Hunting helplessly

In attic and groin,

Nothing glints, no ghost waves.

Only my little toe hurts.

If only words

Would carelessly tumble

Flow, grow,

Quicken and thicken

Shift this shroud

Into dancing print,

But all I have is my squeaking toe.

June 1995, p. 50: B. K. Dearnley (2014). Poems (Private/limited publication).
