Teri Murray on Lord Edward Street

Excerpt from ‘Isis on Edward Street’
 
‘On Edward Street
hieroglyphs of faded memories
scoured by time and rain
hunkered at the base
of a Rosetta Stone
beside the barracks wall
 
Yet May has come again
and the year has turned twice
the eye of Horus is squinting
sunlight through the leaves
of a Horse-chestnut
and a resurgent spark
has restored something to me
after my long stay in the house
of the Dead on the other side
of denial where you still dwell’
 
– Teri Murray
