Guilty, My Lord

by Cyril Ó Céirin

Long years ago in Lincolnshire,
I, driven wild with fear,
killed a man, or think I killed him,
in a fight - I never willed it.

All wounds but his have healed by time:
Lord have mercy on his soul,
and mine.


Taken from ‘Footprints on the Limestone’ (1993), page 49.
