PAINTINGS in Penarth Pavilion

Each time I stroll into the gallery,

I find a fascinating exhibition.

Poems and paintings by Aneurin Morgan Thomas,

Confronted by curious eyes.

I wandered around Carreg Cennen Castle,

Somerset hills and the chapel at Rhos.

A poem about the Second World War,

Described graphically tragedy and gore.

"This roasted rot of manhood."

There was a reconstruction of his desk,

With books, a mug of tea, cards,

Newspapers and a lamp.

I could almost feel his ghost drifting in,

For he died in 2009.

On the next occasion I visit here,

I hope other fine paintings will appear.
