Heart of ice

My sin
My pride
His hands
His side
My fear 
My dread
His feet
His head
My deepest stain
His grief, his pain
My heart of ice
His sacrifice

Hope Cove

Idyllic, sleepy
Fishing town
Where bracken cliffs
Come tumbling down
And seabirds wheel
In skies above
Their cries an emblem
Of the cove.

A surreptitious glance
At you
Revealed the feelings
That were true
One night of freedom
In your arms
A kind of drowning
In your charms.

Am ambled walk
Through fields of gold
The breakers sounding
As they rolled
And you and I
Together, one
To gaze upon
The glorious
Setting of the sun.

If

If you can keep your chin up
And put your back to the wheel
With your nose to the grindstone...

If you can keep on your toes
Whilst putting your best foot forward
And shoulder the responsibility
While bending over backwards
To face the music...

If you can grasp the nettle with both hands
And turn over a new leaf
While keeping your hand in
And getting your finger out...

If you can stand on your own two feet
And pull your socks up
While standing tall...

If you can keep your feet firmly planted on the ground
And show a clean pair of heels
And treat these two positions just the same...

If you can stick your neck out
And put your head on the block
While holding your head up high
And keeping your ear to the ground...

That would all be most unusual

And what is more, 
You'll be a contortionist my son.
