Poem of the Week | Let us go then, you and I by Bernadette Gallagher

Let us go then, you and I

By Bernadette Gallagher


to look at a spider’s web
in the fog of a spring morning

to see a cat’s tail shoot up
as you approach

to see the sun lift the mist
from the valley

to hear a letter drop
through the letter box

to see your first swallow arrive
to feel the absence after they have gone.

(Title is taken from line 1 of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot)
