Crows In A Loop

Cow parsley then keck,
There’s still a wreck
Beyond the dunes
And lagoons with a neck.

Cow parsley soup,
Dog with a croup,
Sometimes fogs
Keep crows in a loop.

Bilders with a Cornish i
Also kex, north aglow
With coleslaw sky,
That wreck is sailing by.

N.B keck, bilders and kex are forms of English dialect for cow parsley

Aphelion

Snow falling on the sea,
I noticed how snowflakes floated awhile
And then we disappeared.

Somewhere out there is Sun,
But sunlight is not for everyone
Down here.

The lathered cabesters returning
And a chacking huer’s thirsty
As he conducts the fairmaids home.

How beautiful the ocean
If only from a skiff,
How beautiful the drop

If only from a cliff,
How beautiful the missing
If only we may live.

Somewhere out there is Moon;
Aphelion wilderness
With a little less gloom.

N.B Lathered, Cabester, Chacking and Huer are words from Cornish dialect. Fairmades or Fairmaids is an old Cornish word for pilchards.
