And places full of light

When the sun is high and bright and strong
We  feel that it will always be the same
But when we live  on earth we know we’re wrong
And for that darkness we have got a name

Now in England we  have lights and screens
We do not fear the dark, the  devils’ night
But often in the winter we will dream
Of summer heat and places full of light

The steps  at Aldeburgh where we saw the sea
The cliffs at Lyme and Charmouth in the spring
But from  such places I dread  memory
The  pain of loss is  hard and no child brings

Now the sky is lilac in the dusk
In creation I find what I trust
