Three poems by Sheila Fugard, the wife of Athol:
- Spiral
- Across the World’s Divide
- Earth Time Ends

Beginnings of hands thrashing
Into new life

If I uncover your face
I shall find the Medusa
Strung up in sky
(from Spiral)

I am transformed
Become the lion goddess
The hag crippled by wealth
I am all these roles
The elongated serpent
A surrogate friend
(from Across the World’s Divide)

The tide gone out forever
The forest swept away
Song echoes and fades
(from Earth Time Ends)
