    8. 8. Those Winter Sundays By robert haydenSundays too my father got up earlyand put his clothes on in the blueblack coldthen with cracked hands that achedfrom labour in the weekday weather madebanked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking.When the rooms were warm, he’d call,and slowly I would rise and dress,fearing the chronic angers of that house,speaking indifferently to him,who had driven out the coldand polished my good shoes as well.What did I know, what did I knowof love’s austere and lonely offices.
