Spick and span leather shoes


M A Heathcote

Spick and span leather shoes
The pavement has read your news
You're worn out soles
Curb, rub and run
On the coals
Of the burnt out sun
Once they were bare
And had the fun of the fair
Once they wore hand knitted booties
White linen laced like falling snow:
But know those strings
Are tired of being loosely tied off...
They wish to be in a new stage show?!
Once they where camp fire dances
Sweet running footstep romances
Blade-cutting stars in the grass.
Swaddling through a woodland path
Like a babble of geese
White stalked, kneed
Bending into a flower
Dreaming the linnetís song!
Like windswept swifts concurring
Over corn fields of gold
Like a kingfisher darting
Under a magnum of water
Sucked into the lily-white darkness
Frae they bare never so lonely or cold
Plunging into life
Plunging; into the mouth of love.
