Lichfield

Grey stone fingers grasping


Lichfield
Doomed Dominion
Prey to Viking plunder
Loyal to the King in time of War
Steadfast

Fine square
Market Bustle
Martyrs scream for mercy
Punters pause and procrastinate
No sale

Statue
Tribute on land
The wand’rer lost at sea
So far from home missed from his hearth
Adieu

Reflect
Upon water
Under the world where
Shadows are playing at the art of
Being

Three Spires
Reaching skywards
Grey Stone fingers grasping
The heavens seeking salvation
Kings sleep

A collaboration between Gary Longden, Val Thompson, Ben Macnair ,Janet Jenkins and Ian Ward
