Poem – Can Masdeu

Can Masdeu

Can Masdeu above sky and sea
Cling to cliff face in rain and wind,
Embrace community caring for place,
Tending the plants that create your earth;
Baby’s cry and children’s laughter,
Bronzed citizens hearts devoted, hands tool laden
Nourish the land that lives and breathes.

Can Masdeu above sea and sky
Cling to the cliff in sun and in storm;
Our ordure remains committed to soil,
Tendrils penetrate in life giving embrace
Eternal sustenance sprung from this passion
Through gripping roots
To leaves that flourish, wither, fall and sustain.

Can Masdeu we love you.
