A rondeau redoublé

All things are possible here
in the peaceable kingdom
all things are possible here

in the peaceable kingdom
every song and scattered crumb
find a willing mouth and ear
the kettle dances with the drum
all things are possible here

the river’s course, a vagrant tear
join forces to invite the sum
of thoughts grown populous and clear
in the peaceable kingdom

in muddied clogs on weary feet, we come
to stamp across the bogs of fear
new patterns with the rising sun
all things are possible here

from fall to freeze, the darkening year
prepares true ink, imprints the thumb
of all that would oppress us here
in the peaceable kingdom

let this now be heard by all, not some
that arcs of faith create the sphere
and what is seen must surely come
toward love the powers of thought adhere
all things are possible.
