Eyes, Old Eyes

This was one of the first poems I ever wrote that I still think is worth preserving. It was written whilst I was still a teenager, as will be apparent, and is the first poem in my collection “First Words”.

Eyes, old eyes

those gazing, fading places

whose curving surface is disturbed

.

Reflections, places

fading faces

pass in waves…

I do not want skin

wrinkled thin

shrivelled on me

while I am still empty

.

Fill me with memories!

.

The old will pass and fall so full

closed up with theirs

disappear in death

and die their time

.

But they too looked up

at old eyes gazing

threads back into history

.

Do I leap my life from day to day

and trail that thread

like life spinning ribbon red

from me?

.

Or snagged and shackled

trailing chains of ancestry?

.

Even now I hear you

the toddling, tottering thunder

who will burst from me

who will one day recede.
