A Carp in the Donut-Shaped Lake

(To Akira Kurosawa)

Swimming in the donut-shaped lake,
The carp goes round and round,
While not in the ocean where waves break,
It is in way more it could want for surround,

While it is not such a make,
None can say it is no found,
For it emule with perfection the sake
Of an environment meant to be confound
For something bigger than lake,
As for here carp goes round and round,

And while at carp's mistake,
Carp finds itself around,
To what comes to partake
Ocean's characteristic abound,

And carp seems to forsake,
The reason to whom it is bound,
And takes for real the fake,
That lake is the ocean's ground,

For carp suffers the redound,
Of the donut-shape of the lake,
It learned to swim round and round,
In this ocean's astounding remake,

With no walls to put brake,
It reminds of ocean profound,
The donut-shaped lake,
Where carp goes round and round,

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
