The Blackthorn Analysis

Author: poem of Louis McKee Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

The blackthorn was his father's,

a piece of Ireland

that the old man could still get his hands around

even as his hands grew weak,

refused to hold.  My father

never knew Ireland;

when he gripped the walking stick

it was something else he was holding on to.

I watched my father

get old; he would stare at his hand

and open and close his fist,

try to fight the arthritis.

By then he had lost the stick,

and he could have used it

to work his grip, to beat

at the hard knot that was tying him up.

When he died he was laid in the ground

only a few feet from his father,

while in Ireland the sturdy blackthorns

were defying that sad land

and bursting with white blossoms.

Anonymous submission.
