Circling the Willow

by Sep 4, 2006Poetry

Hi ho, touch and go,
Circling the willow,
Canopy for blanket,
Cloud up high for pillow,
Rest now, under bough,
‘Round about the alder,
Lickety-so, timber-ho,
Never do we falter.
For we march upon the duy-grass,
Drawing rings around the beech.
To ask for your forgiveness,
And, indeed, to beseech.
Flipaflo, ho-dee-doe,
Spiraling the spruce,
Though this is supposed to be Tom Bombdil
It sounds a bit like Dr. Seuss
