Michael Stevenson. (2004) Peter Clarke: Fanfare, Cape Town: Michael Stevenson.  Illustrated on page 105, with poem:

BRIT-HELENE (in Asker)

Always dressed neatly

but in some plain, plain garment

black or gray

as if belonging, in fact,

to a sect

I didn't expect

that her apartment,

instead of being some sombre shade,

would be so pleasant,

warm & colourful,

the happy way

a laugh bursts through

after a period of mourning.
