HOW SWEET AND LOVELY

ARE THE THINGS I FOUND

 

 

when I knew I wouldn’t die

that day

 

released from terror’s threat

back amongst the living

 

Things that had started to slip my grasp

suddenly became alive and clear

full of colour

 

even my untidy kitchen

sang hymns to life in the dirty delft
