Terry and Julie cross over the river Gladdened again by the sight of each other They’re famed for their simplicity And it is their song that providence shuffles Onto my lips between splutters and sniffles Outstaying my welcome on the earth Oh, what a century! To live and reign You kneel down to navigate The length and the breadth of a prayer Long have you languished in there. Terry and Julie admire the sunset But a song removed, it’s not quarter to one yet Though the days pass like a second hand Here in the front room, hooked to a contraption You do my ablutions and block my distraction: A grey matinée movie Oh, what a century! To slip one’s chain The mother of mortals Constant and stable and scared Spinning the bad news she heard. You kneel down to navigate The lone, level sands of a prayer But nobody’s in the know Nobody’s in my confidence.
