Which colours

13 May 2019

For Kamila…who looks, sees, feels

Which colours to label the emotions
when your daughter gives you a book
titled You’re wonderful

with the dedication I love you
all life’s dilemmas dissolve
and a golden rain descends
you fall asleep as if drugged
as the scent of sweet peas once
a smile remains on your pyjamas, skin and bedlinen
to lead you by the hand through the day

you awake – a tree covered in buds

Translation Graham Crawford
