St. Paul’s, Jarrow.

It is
The oldest of dust,
Gathered into the corner
Of a town
Still rattling with
Iron and anger.
Layer upon layer
Of stone and silt
Laid down to fashion
The perfect hide
For restless spirits,
Roaming spirits.

It is
A stone box bursting
To the lid
With the glittering jewels
Of lore, memory
And colour:
All held fast as
Sent down through
The centuries for
Our safe keeping.

It is
The beginning
And the end
Of the Great mystery.
Old tales are
Told and retold
‘til the quantum code
Is cracked.
Then we will know
And not know.
For now I say, stay.
Stay hidden in the trees.

And wait …

Barry Hall
