Looking Eastward

you could call me Larry

you might call me Shaun

but I will look Eastward

and wait for the dawn


you may think me seasoned

you could call me spring

but I'm looking Eastward

while the morning birds sing


you could call me silly

you might think me dumb

but when I look Eastward

I greet the dawn sun

One of five poems written by Steve Page in response to paintings at the BEAT (Borough of Ealing Art Trail) exhibit at St John's Church, West Ealing in September 2019.

The painting is entitled Looking eastward, by the artist and Kim McLaughlin.
