For bohemians everywhere

Marjorie Cole – Towards Sleep

From Bohemian Bouquet, published 1980 by The Bohemians.


Towards Sleep


Tempo of tiredness favours andante

The sunlight transforming from sharp and vivacious

Lies slanting and beautiful over the roof-tops in

Afternoon’s lengthening, cushioned unwavering

On running emerald islands of moss.


The business of living seems muted, neglected

Goes aimlessly seeping

Right out of my heavy thoughts’ keeping

In quiet undulations of lack of possession.

Oblivion welcomes and void and negation

With hope that tomorrow may focus and quicken.


Marjorie Cole
