Artist's Description

Part of the English Summer Series

As in the field he sat.

Young Molly dark hair opened up a seam
into the valley where the men had been
cost nothing, she said
for quick was all it was
and a silly ransom
she had to have because.
Truth be told she minded
not so much for that
but because she loved him
as in the field he sat
so today she loved him
and was all for care
tomorrow she would hate him
all for playing fair

Young Molly dark hair was now a woman grown
had seen this this bloody foundling suddenly not there
hanging on her doorstep
letting hatred roam
Truth be told she wanted
to be left without a care
otherwise she’d hurt shown
as hate was always seen
for the times she’d been home
with others to compare
Now she always thought of
him planted in between.

Old Molly grey hair was forever thinking
of the past and lovers who had the will and sinking
in the memory scatters
the truth had now long gone
from the field he touched hers
in the pasture of her heart
where she’d always put him
what she wished to be
but how he grew to hate her
that she could not see
he was better on his own now
bitter with regret
she saw him as he left her
their faces lying wet.

Now Molly dead one
could no more regret
When she lost control of
the stage of him she’d set
for all she tried to change him
and this important weal
she could no more be content with
feelings she could steal
she was not important
to his final aim
She was only someone who
with feelings played a game.
