Kidwelly

Kidwelly Castle

 

 

Grass carpeted the grounds at Kidwelly.

It was so green and so fine

 

That by appearance it seemed to be fine velvet.

A green tattoo that did not allow me to see

 

Back hundreds and hundreds of years

To barn animals, foot-soldiers, peasants,

 

Straw-covered, manure-covered and filth-

Covered ground.

 

Standing there among the green I felt peace and tranquillity,

At odds with the hustle and bustle from the past.

 

If I were Queen I’d prefer the green of the lawn,

And I’d rope it off with little signs: “Keep Off The Grass”.

laugharne: the home of dylan thomas

Dylan Thomas' Boathouse; Laugharne

 

On our recent trip to Wales we drove to Laugharne to visit the home of Dylan Thomas. As you can see by the pictures, it really is the most beautiful place in the world. Dylan Thomas’ boathouse was one of the most inspiring places I’ve been to. Whilst there I wrote the poem below, Misted Sound. I hope you enjoy the poem and the pics.

Misted Sound 

 

You can breathe by the sea of the stars

And the sun

And the overhanging clouds

That envelope the soul

The mind

And the eyes that see.

You can wait by the tide

As the gulls

Sing your tune

As the wind whips your

Hair

And mist freshens your face.

You can lose yourself

In the sand

In the marsh

By the cliffs

And to the sea

But you will not drown

In Dylan Thomas’

Town.

His voice is heard miles

Round not just here

In this misted sound.
