St David’s Day

Posted on Updated on

At school they told us

that it was the day

on which Jesus

and a host of angels came to Wales.

There was sunshine

full of endless song

– and the soul of David was borne away

to heaven.

I thought,

‘He must have been

a good man for God’s Son

to come for him.’

Through the classroom window

we could see the late white

linger in patches,

and brave green blades

spearing through

the soggy carpet

of last Autumn’s leaves.

And the blades

proudly unfurled

their yellow banners

– their daffodil symbol

of St. David

and the heart

of Wales.
