Weathering

Chloë Rain

Weathering by Fleur Adcock

Literally thin-skinned, I suppose, my face
catches the wind off the snow-line and flushes
with a flush that will never wholly settle.

Well:
that was a metropolitan vanity,
wanting to look young for ever, to pass.

I was never a pre-Raphaelite beauty,
nor anything but pretty enough to satisfy
men who need to be seen with passable women.

But now that I am in love with a place
which doesn't care how I look, or if I'm happy,

Happy is how I look, and that's all.

My hair will turn grey in any case,
my nails chip and flake, my waist thicken,
and the years work all their usual changes.

If my face is to be weather-beaten as well

That's little enough lost, a fair bargain
for a year among lakes and fells, when simply
to look out of my window at the high pass
makes me indifferent to mirrors and to what
my soul may wear over its new complexion.

"BE AN ARTIST."

Sometimes your idea of who you should be gets in the way of who you really are.

"A man who drinks pink champagne with me, calls me an artist while he's lighting my cigarette, then tells me I'm a powerful woman. This is a man I will love forever. And when the sunlight comes out in Seattle and illuminates the brilliance of the mountains, I know that this is heaven on earth, and God has good taste." - Chloë Rain
