I

Snap

Blue, lacing through
Dark trees –
Girls race from school
Into the sun.

 

II

Held

She deploys space,
He measures time;
Love’s configured in her face,
And in their rhyme.

 

III

Leaving Lloyd Rees

(to Arda)

All forms were lost in colour then in light;
But forms persist, rocks in a drifting sea.
These tides of light show beautiful and swift –
Wreck you on stubborn forms most easily.

 

 

At Antichrist ...

“… the rebel will shew himself; and the Lord Jesus
will destroy him with the breath of his mouth …”
II Thessalonians 2:8

It must all proceed down:
  When stone will be un-stoned
  Under His-Holy-Frown

On that man we’ll have enthroned
  By our patient wickedness.
  Usurping what was loaned –

Finger by finger’s guess –
  We’ll raise, we’ll crown, unmoved
  By Who-Can-Never-Bless-

This-Stealth. (Then we’ll see proved,
  His-Won’t can raze our will,
  Can harrow all we’ve smoothed:

Our king provoke His-Kill.)

Andrew Huntley




























The perfect gift for
