house on a hill_caralee clark

~~a pantoum~~

There is a house upon a hill
we used to visit once a year
where daffatoos and cockadrills
in great profusion sprung with cheer.

We used to visit once a year
with pachyderms. Uncertain terms
in great profusion, sprung with cheer,
to certain joy somehow appeared.

With pachyderms, uncertain terms
must slowly be unraveled.
To certain joy somehow appeared
an appetite for travel.

“Must slowly be unraveled”
is anathema to some.
An appetite for travel
to the fixéd mind feels dumb.

Is anathema to some
an urge? To wallow in the past
to the fixéd mind feels dumb,
can blind. The fact? This too shall pass.

An urge to wallow in the past
where daffatoos and cockadrills
can blind the fact, this too shall pass.
There is a house upon a hill…
