Elegy for Nick



On the road in the white bubble

Moving on from the wake

Onward to Victoria

Duties as a Mum’n’Dad in one

Off with a darling daughter

To flirt with wedding dresses

Rituals condensing

Reflecting

The pace and manner of our time

New love back in town waiting

With promise of summer fun

My mate Nick’s left us behind

A gem of a man with a lilting smile

A tale on his tongue

And a pun on his mind
