Belmont Remembered – A Poem by Geoffrey Heptonstall


Submitted by Geoffrey Heptonstall

Here is more than simple earth
and less than a claim to heaven.
We name this as elsewhere,
there to step upon the sacred site
of the ocean’s origins, a spring
in innocence so naturally wild,
raising the question with no answer
across the low water strand
because life will last forever
as surely as the sea returns.
