Remember

Remember, honey,
Behind the trees
At twilight
When persistently
You swung
Your tiny thigh
Whenever I tickled;
And with humorous smile
You clung
Your electrified flesh
On to me, dearly,
With a lasting kiss.

Remember daughter
Of Kenneth Knight:
Our memorable games,
Our fantastic dreams,
Our fearful fantasies
In the depth of your father’s
Courtyard,

Remember…
Remember…
Remember…
