Hi, I’m Becca Nigel’s daughter and I am helping him out whilst he is ill. These are a few of his poems that were ready to post. I’m sure he’ll be back soon.
‘Be tethered no more v2’
A Soul now freed
Though my body is by ropes of foul malady bound,
and I’m haunted by memories of a life lived before,
still do I feast on the rich fruits I find lying around
and to all that’s ordinary will I be tethered no more.
I let curiosity loose to soar above on silvered wings
and from the blue look down on all that’s mundane,
and witness sights unseen, listening as earth sings
it’s songs of life, hearing night’s morning refrain.
No longer do I have to fear the sad folly of youth
and yet a boy’s heart beats in me still, so I dream,
for therein lie the previews of tomorrow’s truth,
so to simply fall asleep is surely to blaspheme.
I wear not a coat of unease and make bold of deed,
embracing the mantle of a tethered soul now freed.
