Poetry on Doctors
Specially written poetry was featured in two episodes this week.
On Tuesday, 5 March the episode 'Shrovetide' featured this poem by the Jeremy Hylton Davies:
This Minute is Yours
This Hour, This Day
The footprint in the sand,
The crackling of leaves underfoot
The Winter birds in song
This climb, peak heading
Crossing rock and stream,
This hand, clasping yours,
Skin binding skin,
The forever bond between,
You and me.
This happy moment.
This is Yours.
On Wednesday, 6 March the episode 'The Sharper the Tongue' by Andrew Cornish featured this poem by Andrew:
The darker the berry, the more sour the fruit.
The brighter the flower, the more bitter the root.
The sharper the tongue, the sweeter the smile;
The wolves in sheep’s clothing bewitch and beguile.
They speak to you kindly to lead you astray,
To feast on your sadness, your fear and dismay.
So honour your father, repent all your sin,
And always beware of the beast from within.
