    Footsteps


    Take the old road after midnight
    From Dymchurch wall to the Burmarsh chimes
    Arm yourself with a trusty lantern
    With ardent prayers to your given god
    ~
    Sorrow on the touch of night wind
    Chills the heart and melts resolve
    Keep you’re footsteps to the pathway
    For you there is no turning back
    ~
    Murmurs in the fluted reeds
    Footfalls on the path behind
    Hoof beats on the Brenzet meadows
    Quietened by a fearful glance
    ~
    Small the church of Saxon stone
    Sits silvered by the hanging moon
    Open mouths of empty windows
    Call the dead to evensong
    ~
    Marshland mist waits to greet you
    Fingered wraiths of vapour rising
    Summond by the curlews call
    What is waiting, round the bend?
