A pause for thought on Remembrance Sunday

No politics or sport today. Instead, a poem from Adrian Henri that reminds us on this day above all others, that it’s good to be alive

Galactic Lovepoem

Warm your feet at the sunset

Before we go to bed

Read your book by the light of Orion

With Sirius guarding your head

Then reach out and switch off the planets

We’ll watch them go out one by one

You kiss me and tell me you love me

By the light of the last setting sun

We’ll both be up early tomorrow

A new universe has begun
