Weeds grow where they want to; not where they're told to grow...


Martin Burke

'Burke uses all the poetic tools at his disposal to create poems that rejoice in being poems & rejoice in the world about the poem.'
- James Cummins



The responsive modulations of the heart

Yes, this is the world as it is

Is and will be in all its many selves

Self of water, self of air – self in its singing song

Song of tower, song of water, song of three swans
upon the lake and the song of three children calling

The water flowing, flowing, flowing

All things flowing into verse

Word and world and the responsive heart

Three towers - three swans – the heart responding –
the mouth replying with a lyric

Lyric of delight, of Brugge in its beauty, of the
fashioning word upon the waters of the world

Spoken, written, sung, and loved by
the one who is your lover
