Contributor Series 11: On Birthdays
Not Quite Tomas
By PD Lyons

crosses the church yard
with a girl that would have been Sorcha, if it were

how much more than footsteps
between us now

yet still I look
expecting him has caught my eye

there used to be horses before Cabra
sanctuary on the Liffey

our children would meet, play,
remember one another’s birthdays

PD Lyons’ most recent poem to appear here was My Soul Flows (May 2012).
