Regret


All we dreamt in 73

lives on today in Glastonbury. 

Conceived before the music played

as early summer’s fields made way

for merrymaker’s harvests’ hay,

a resonance was set in sway

that beats disharmony today.

Beneath the rainbow’s incensed streets

where now the hapless hopeless wreak

a pitiless array of needs

unmet but optimistic still,

‘not dead and not quite beaten, yet; 

fifty quid’s on consciousness;

Realisation’s worth a bet,’

when there’s nothing left. 

Cherry Coombe – on tour 2021.
