Julia Origo poetry: Witness

J u l i a  O r i g o

(1965-2005)


w i t n e s s


s t a g e  o n e


I have seen many eagles

in recent years

so different

like a date without desteny

 

s t a g e  t w o


and when you give up

-perhaps that’s the deal-

like all that died before

you get old

at any age

 

s t a g e   t h r e e


then this misunderstanding

full of promise of modern fable

of a missing link

between age and mind

between losing home

and losing time


between you

and him

 

(London 1998)
