ADAGIO OUTSIDE ST. MICHAEL'S CHURCH, CHATHAM

by Andrew J. Müller

Outside St. Michael's Church
I sheltered from the wind
Which brought the sigh of October
Through browning leaves
A man walked by
Hunched up against the cold
Collar turned up to enfold.

The not-gothic arch
Of the Church apsidal end
Towered above my head
Pollution staining the brick
The man moved off
Into the evening's gloom
He didn't want to linger here
Rush off home to the dear.

To me the wind cries Jacqui's name
When she is far away
I wait patiently
For my lift to arrive
And the car corners the road
Headlights cut through the gloom
I'm home to warm and light
Waiting for my love's return flight.
