Poem To Black Hair

Category: Dark Materials

What I love
As we walk
On my shoulder your head gently rests, 
Pressing close
As if to lean
As if to whisper
As if by accident
- and only for a moment
You stay
Hair thick against my neck 
Bramble tangle and moor wild
Wool warm and mint tingle
Untamed
Untameable
Like you.

A Snicker's bar costs 60p. Were these words worth as much?

This is a reader supported site, so every micro payment (the cost of chocolate bar) helps pay for cups of tea, cake and general web pimpery. Support via Paypal below, or even better still become a Patreon.
