Summer and sailors are out there, chasing the wind, and having fun. Or they are busy scrubbing the keel, waiting for wind. Or they are sitting on deck, watching the wind on the water …
on the mud flat …
a kingfisher swoops
bow and stern
To Bethlehem: ‘This little book is delightful, full of … poems on this timeless subject. … the most fun is the little prose vignettes of the common people in the Christ-child story. The slave who looks after the wise men’s camels, or the overworked maid at the inn who has to fetch water for the birth, and many more. A lovely gift for the reader on your Christmas list!’ Rosalind Adams. Available from Amazon and Kindle.
