    Julia Origo poetry: Witness


    Julia Origo


    W i t n e s s


    s t a g e   o n e

    I have seen many eagles

    in recent years

    so different

    like a date without desteny


    s t a g e  t w o

    and when you give up

    -perhaps that’s the deal-

    like all that died before

    you get old

    at any age


    s t a g e  t h r e e

    then this misunderstanding

    full of promise of modern fable

    of a missing link

    between age and mind

    between losing home

    and losing time

    between you

    and him


    (London 1985)
