Lean- to by Tommy Murray


Immortalised in albums

And affectionately framed

Family gatherings, that

Will be me with the broken plinth

And the dark patch

Where the pebbledash ran out

A ponytail of bits and pieces

Hand me downs and afterthoughts

I am hardly photogenic

But once when September posed impromptu

I was for a split second

Three sixteenths of a spectacular sunset

This little poem which I wrote some years back was published in the Kilkenny Literary Review
