“Packed Lunch” by Taidgh Lynch

Today you made lunch
buttered my heart,
grated heather hills,
spread thick a warm, summer sky.
Your eyes sparkled in the almond sun
as you wrapped love in cling film.
Outside in the apple orchard
a warbler sings our favourite song.


This poem was first published in The Ofi Press and in First Lift Here, a JackPine Press poetry chapbook published in 2019. Listen to Taidgh read “Packed Lunch” here: https://soundcloud.com/taidgh-lynch/packed-lunch
