New Jacket. (For Damaris)

Poem By Seamus Hogan

That dead tree that I'm about to cut,
proud with its crow bounty.
A few sheep mushroomed
fly scarved cattle fields
down the road,
In the wardrobe
a new jacket
waiting to be worn old.
This winter
whatever the weather
I shouldn't be cold.

Feeding Time

Out fly the fowl
Like feathers from a bolster
And who comes last but the rooster.
Pausing to raise a leg,

The Blackbird

Inside a sycamore
yellow peaked black movement


Perhaps it's a little consolation that the village
Lays a carpet of whispers as you are led into


For Hannah.

Before settling for the evening
A cock pheasant

Sketch For A Self Portrait

If You can imagine a blind woman
Knitting, in total darkness, a woollen
Jumper then the wool you see is me.


From their control tower
the nest of chicks
Guide in their parents
On a runway of cries.
