A Work for Poets by George Mackay Brown

1 Jan

A Work for Poets

To have carved on the days of our vanity
A sun
A ship
A star
A cornstalk

Also a few marks
From an ancient forgotten time
A child may read

That not far from the stone
A well might open for wayfarers

Here is a work for poets-
Carve the runes
Then be content with silence

From « A Work for Poets » (1996)[1]
