Broken Heart poem

When the heart 

is cut or cracked or broken 

Do not clutch it

Let the wound lie open

Let the wind 

From the good old sea blow in 

To bathe the wound with salt 

And let it sting 

Let a stray dog lick it

Let a bird lean in the hole and sing 

A simple song like a tiny bell 

And let it ring

Michael Leunig
