POEMS: 1934-1944 by Ian Maudie
And you have called us dreamers,
seekers for that which we shall never find,
chasers of shadows, poets, groping
for something far beyond the mind
as are the distances beyond the stars.
Have you not also, maybe in your youth
ere you retreated to the tents of absolute afraid
and hid your heads in some small ostrich pile of sand,
sensed a vast wonderment, that sudden made
you reel towards the marches of our dreams?
