Monday Morning - Bernard Pearson

It was a good day to walk

In discrete rain; to see a town

In its workaday clothes.

To see scaffolding erected

And no one hung.

To listen to chittering

Sparrows discussing

the weather in an aviary

of their own making.

to watch old people

hesitantly fording

the high street like

wildebeest.

to disturb books

in bookshops plotting

and to watch the girl

in the greengrocers

shining apples

with their breath ,

as if she were

about to bowl from

the pavilion end.
