Life For 'Angie' of the Play*



 She says my name,

Softly, gently,

Mary behind,

Mary in front, 

We - are complete

We gasp with relief

All the people are 'with us'.

There is Love and Peace,

Like a babe asleep

The play fades -

To the arms of the night

And the Dark

Its life doth hold -

As a Star,

Embedded in



* Judy Monahan played Angie in the Birmingham and Royal Court, London, productions of' David Edgar's play Mary Barnes.
