                             all the while
                      the flagpole rope
                                   occasionally flaps
                             the breeze

                      the five year old walks
                      along behind his grandad

                      then he is on the grass
                      between the stones with
                      careful paunchy steps
                      turnsquick glasses that
                      already look middle-aged
                      to see if the grandad has
                      noticed already gone round
                      the front of the church he
                      turns back behind the stones

                      I return to my book –
                      running ‘placs’ of blue crocs
                      down the tarmac path
