PIVOTAL

Shining forth in some Jerusalem,
steepled tones ring out
sonourous chanted notes
as Bayards bell speaks.
The coltes word carried out
across the furrowed hills,
echoing in the deep
chambers of the beetling hundreds.
Stone rises to the hand
beneath twisting taproots
sheed in blood
and ancestral fire.
Albions iron shoulder set
to hold as fossilled vigour
drives haiver backs to
Earth.
