The deal table where he wrote, so small and plain,

the single bed a dream of discipline.

And a flagged kitchen downstairs, its mote-slants


of thick light: the unperturbed reliable

ghost-life he carried, with no need to invent.

And high trees round the house, breathed upon


day and night by winds as slow as a cart

coming late from market, or the stir

a fiddle could make in his reluctant heart.
