come gently with birth

come gently with life

grow with the place

until we grew beyond how it was

beyond the culture and crowding


becoming unsettled


retaining memory


cycling the promenade hoping

some one will love us some day

baking down dunes

walking down tracks

barefoot hoping for less paving in town

2. humbling for a home

walking looking in windows

will some one want us

house us?

3. finding the two above

settling for the place where folk

come to holiday beautiful

while we work the bones of it

the grit beneath

bournemouth beautiful

the reason beneath the move away

is beyond any words i have just


where folk

come to holiday beautiful
