Through a Window, Looking Back (poem)

Research output: Textual Creative WorksOther contribution

Abstract

At last, she thought, looking back
through the train's jiggling window,
seeing the Italian countryside
like a Giorgione landscape.
But what was this 'at last'
it was hardly being here
away from family and domestic routine,
though, it's true, she'd longed for that;
for an absence of needing to be
what others required.
