POETRY: Indoors by R. S. Thomas

Indoors by R. S. Thomas

It was easier to come out with you
Into the fields, where birds made no claim
On my poor knowledge and flowers grew
With no thought but to declare God.

Within I had the old problems
To cope with: turning from the Book’s
Comfortable words, I came face to face
With the proud priests and their intolerant look.
