TATE BRITAIN - The Weston Gallery 1950

No. 12


Magda Cordell

An apparition


Lucent and haloed

Buds erupting

weeping from a scaffold

Divine arrangement

Cruciform arms extending

framing, forming

separating, supporting

Soft swollen tears

droop in crimson

Gold, citrus

and solar smears

stain and sanctify

Foaming circulation

embalmed embryo

bleeds of life
