Ilston Revisited by Byron Beynon

A stream flowed beneath
an atmosphere of leaves,
time-remembered scenes
with trodden pathways
half-hidden away.
The scent of tangled growth,
yellow light piercing
the music of the heart.
It was an afternoon
when all I wanted was you,
and for familiar time
to stand still
over us, there we stood
side by side,
sharing this life's
fraction of breath,
our hands clasped
as one.
