Description

R. S. Thomas reads his poem He And She He And She by R. S. Thomas (1913-2000) When he came in, she was there. When she looked at him, he smiled. There were lights in time's wave breaking on an eternal shore. Seated at table - no need for the fracture of the room's silence; noiselessly they conversed. Thoughts mingling were lit up, gold particles in the mind's stream. Were there currents between them? Why, when he thought darkly, would the nerves play at her lips' brim? What was the heart's depth? There were fathoms in her, too, and sometimes he crossed them and landed and was not repulsed.
