When god poured me
From his perfect mould
He forgot to tell me
That I would get old
My skin would wrinkle
My hair would turn grey
And that even my sweet tooth
Dear god please
Take pity on me
And recast me in
A magnificent bronze
As smooth as can be
No lines, no grey
Just perfect immortality
Michael Ashby Poems
The swan silently crossed the river
No reflection, no ripple in her wake
Lit by a moving sunbeam, she crossed the water, Just, for my sake
I sat down aboard her back
As her head turned to me
And she looked into my eyes, asking,
Are you really, really, ready
I nodded, as tears rained, from my face
To join countless others in their river
The swan started swimming & slowly singing, The most beautiful music
I had ever heard in my life
And then the swan suddenly changed
From black into a dazzling white
And I stopped crying and started smiling
As together we crossed over
Into the most brilliant of light
Michael Ashby, Sidmouth
