fool scold

in a before time

a smattering of twistings

pitched apple grenades

way out in the water

where is my mind?

holding an entreaty:

dear matter tell us

in honour of your

awed and varied rich craft

affirm hour tender vespers

green sheaves full of pisky dust

and arouse dawn’s bold aurora
