A #Tanka for a Month with Yeats: Day 17

Howick Dawn. (10445801504)

 

‘The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,’ —W.B. Yeats

pre-dawn sky

her pale cold hand caressing

my bloody cheek

all the tears I cannot cry

at my enemy’s mercy

for Jane Dougherty’s a Month with Yeats: Day 17
