Graham Kingsley Brown, Artist and Poet, 1932 - 2011
POETRY and PROSE

Mike with Obelisk

Montage of various notebooks of writings

Bestiary
A sample of 3 of around 35 poems.

Duck
The pond was badly ironed,
Or so I thought:
I should have known that ducks would leave
No crease of any sort.

Church Mouse
Eating the bread, the red wine sipping,
Mice, after mass, go musing, go tripping,
Indiminuendo, down the complicated stair,
To the heavenly crypt where the bright bones are.

Lion
Of those two monarchs, the lion and the sun,
The lionís share of bullion
Affords him raiment and a sort of crown.
(His throne is wheresoever he lieth down.)
