A Welsh Recollection

A Welsh Recollection

A Poem by Siddartha Beth Pierce

In Caenarvon
I did alight
with fallen castle
in my sight.

Raised a fist
into the air
to gather strength
from those from there.

In Llandudno too
I had much fun
in pubs next door to B&B
where my order
was taken
from an old kitty cat
named Whiskey.

Irish church group
in background
sang out a tune
of magical sound.

Upon the shores of Wales
I saw
each grave held the name
of father, uncle, aunt
grandparents sought.

I lived here 
once before
and in traveling back
by memory-

I simply
long to be
there again
upon Welsh shores
to experience all
that made us run
and yet recall.
