On A Child Killed By A Motor Car

Child, a moment of love ago
you danced in the eye of the woman
who made you. When another moment
like the innocent wheat that made the loaf
of bread she sent you for
in this field of the heart's ploughed land
you were threshed !

Martin Carter, Poems Of Succession, 1974
