Then by Michael Healy

Then by Michael Healy

Then is where, when or how

Though usually in the past.

Rarely is it now, nor does it often last,

Wherever the viewer recalls events,

Single or Multiple memories:

The Battle of Britain,

The Second World War.


When was then?

Simply when the memory was special,

good or bad.

When man first walked upon

the surface of the moon,

Then that was a definite then.

But, as to when he might walk on Mars?

That is a definite when,

not then.
