Saint Ealdhem

The bishop moulders
in The Green Book
with its mossy bindings
on antique yellow papers
of Glastonbury parchment.

Stands in shadows,
a cave of hollows.

Wears his ceremonial hat,
carries a crook, holds
a babe in arms

stone severe expression
his stone face
rain shaped
a mask
of moulds

his chin, cheeks
lichen whiskers

robes flow
into a pond
of reeds.
