-         Mike Jenkins (U.K.)


You wanted into a world

Of Welsh words,

Asked where ‘Gurnos’ came from 

And I found you a night beacon.


But now, builder became friend,

I see your signature 

Around and inside our home:

Stones where our lawn was,

Wooden supports for a failing fence,

Brass curtain-rails and plans,

So many schemes.


I only wish…….

The ornate metal bridge

You and Katharine would get,

Our cracking outhouse

Another puzzle to solve.


I’m useless with drill or saw.

If only you could rebuild yourself 

To endure all weathers.
