The watcher on the strand

Jane Dougherty Writes

Miranda_-_The_Tempest_JWW

In the sedge a curlew
in the house a child
on the sea a tempest
tossing the waves so wild.

On the strand a watcher
on the swell a sail
on the roof a raven
round the hearth a tale.

In the tale a grieving
in the heart a stone
in the rain a keening
where the watcher stands alone.
