Glacier

by Mandy Haggith

What can we learn from it?
How to be blue.
To move mountains you just have to be cool.
Beware of the sea.
You’re bound to look a bit different every day.
Feed growlers to the bears,
decorate the fjord with bergy bits,
keep bergs for special occasions.
Don’t be afraid of cracking up in front of people.
Calve, momentously, when no-one is looking.
