Gemini Twins

In two tiny cots
You lie - not yet an hour
Old - the vernix still

Damp on your heads and
I watch in fascination
As your small faces

Suddenly colour
And you start to cry, and how
Your immaculate

Miniature hands
Clench tightly; and then just as
Suddenly how

You both slip into
Sleep and in the strange silence
I reflect upon

This moment - high-up
Here above the rooftops of
Norwich, and how on

This June day in the
Last year of the century
Your two lives begin.
