Sunday’s Child – a poem to celebrate being European

Sunday’s Child

  1. The church clock chimes
  2. A red brick wall in view
  3. With sunshine on my face
  4. I close my eyes, see blood
  5. Not of anger, but of family
  6. From my Dutch parents
  7. A Courtyard in Delft
  8. Part of me forever
  9. Belonging, in blood red bricks
  10. Birds sing, cars pass
  11. The chiming ceases

The child that is born on the Sabbath day, is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Written 11am Sunday 5th May by Carolyn Black, who was born European on Sunday 9th December in England
