    25 feet rise when Greenland Melts (for Cari)

    img077.jpg


    You say you sit within a mile
    where sand spits shingle from shingle
    and Thorndike wrote of venal Syn,
    of Customs due Crown Revenue
    in a town crouched beneath a wall,
    of love and loss in this vengeful tale
    for a marsh held in Moonlight's thrall
    ~
    This denge remains in memory
    a place of windswept beauty,
    an austere haunt of sea kale
    and pebble set horned poppy
    where RHDR runs mile on mile
    from Military Canal to BNFL
    ~
    A past beached with fish to sell,
    tar-paper shacks and cabins dwell
    where railway cars no longer roll
    and as the coming years unveil
    all in reach of the ice melt swell.
