Poetry Magnum Opus

Recommended Posts

This Welsh farmer speaks of love:
the hills, his wife, and daffodils
which flower late because winter
comes long and bitter. A slow key
unlocks this land. His wife and him
rooted in hills, and daffodils 
harvesting light to fray the clouds.
Up here, it's best, they say. He nods.

I presumed incorrectly that Galantamine was a place. When I looked it up and learned that it was a substance for treating AD, it put the poem in a different perspective. Though I'd prefer it to be the name of a place, the setting you've depicted puts a positive spin on the inevitable: it's a bucolic domicile for one who has entered the sunset of his life.
