Dot... Letter... Word...
It takes a lot of confidence
To build a house here on this scraggy hill,
A person’s got to look inside
To drive away the subpolar chill.
The manx shearwaters ride the air,
Sometimes so high, swinging, black,
And here is this solid stone,
Grey seals, the wind in the cul-de-sac.
