The Sky-lit Room – by Robert Nisbet


The Sky-lit Room
A small Welsh town, 1966

A sky-lit kitchen window where, just two
floors up and on a rise, I thrilled upon
the past, the town.

That kitchen, Castle Terrace, had a view
of jumbled streets, of buildings joist-by-jowl
with history,

a past of stitched and soldered livelihoods,
of hardships, close-negotiated hopes,
a small town’s loom.




Robert Nisbet is a Welsh poet who has had many poems published in the UK and the US, in journals like San Pedro River Review, Constellations, Clementine Unbound, and Common Ground Review.
