"Where do people go when they die?
Somewhere down below or in the sky?
I can’t be sure, said Grandad, but it seems
They simply set up home inside our dreams"
And you never left me, I know. You've only set up home inside my dreams.
Jeanne Willis writes stories for children. But these verses are taken from a poetry anthology for grown ups: "Staying alive", Bloodaxe Books.
Yes, I write. Yes, I believe in the magic of words. That’s why you’ll find me here, every Friday: Lisa “globish”!
I believe in the magic of words, and I believe Piazza Unità in Trieste, where I was born, is the most romantic square in the world. (And yes, it’s in Italy, proudly facing the sea). I love roses in every form. And, of course, I do love my blog, expecially now that I can carry it around on my iPhone.
