In The Sherwood Forest Clearing

In The Sherwood Forest Clearing

Past the warlock, the blacksmith,
ye olde ”Ale & Turkey Drumstick”
and the jousters down the lane
we chanced upon a slumbering sprite in the wood.

Later we floated
back over the corn stubble field
to some internal combustion machine
or another, to sail home into the sunset
with the wind whipping our rigging

in 6/8 time gypsy hip-shaking tambourine.
