About Jean Tatton Jones
There are no upcoming events
My view of the war leading up to VE Day as a very young child in London.
When the Talking Stopped
In the faint hum of the afternoon
Laden bees buzz, buzzing
Among the musky bloom.
Teddy urged to drink his share
His mouth firmly unyielding
Amid the milk stained hair
And I remember laughing
When as she shelled the peas
The maggot popped up - smiling.
But then - the warning siren.
The sky looked sad, downcast
The sun had closed its eyes.
Jagged stairs still clung to the wall
- Embedded deep
Like the nails in my clenched palms,
For now there was only rubble
And broken - broken stems
Where those fingers had gently tended
The few flowers in the yard.
With inner sense dismantled,
I mouthed it would be alright,
But teddy just stared glass-eyed
- Reflecting my own doubt.
I DO SHIP INTERNATIONALLY, BUT PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR ACCURATE PRICES AS POSTAL COSTS CAN VARY SO MUCH TO DIFFERENT AREAS.
