Reasons, by Tom McGrath

Here is the second in our series of Scottish Love Poems, for your delight, in the run up to St Valentine’s Day on 14th February:

Sweet one I love you

for your lovely shape,

for the art you make

in paint and bed and rhyme,

but most because we see

into each other’s hearts,

there to read secrets

and to trust,

and cancel time.

                             Tom McGrath (b.1940)
