Postcards from Wales


On the slate roof of
The White Lion Hotel, the
Jackdaws cough and caw.


Deep in the rock-cleft,
The tiny twisted oak wears
Its coat of lichens.


Under the old arch
The dipper tears past; one inch
Above the river.

Blaenau Ffestiniog

Small slate-roofed terraced
Houses cling to the hillside
Under the mine's scar.


On the steep valley
Side, slate headstones stand out like
Teeth ominously.
