‘The Quilt’

by Michael Longley2015-03-18 13.27.09

“I come here in the dark, I shall leave here in the dark –
No time to look around Amherst and your little house,
To talk of your ill father, my daughter’s broken – no,
There isn’t time – tears in the quilt, patterns repeating…”

You can read the complete poem here. Michael Longley was born on this day in 1939, you can read more of his work through Surrey Libraries.
