A Naked Corn Mill


I
Sir Dino Bill
Lived on Disaba hill
With Lady Diana Bill
They had a corn mill
Beside their water drill.
Sir Dino Bill
And Lady Diana Bill
Loved standing still
Beside the water drill
For each shrill
Of the mill
Drew birds from round the hill
The birds loved the corn at the mill.
And so, Sir Dino Bill
And Lady Diana Bill
Would stood still
Beside the water drill
And they would shoot and kill
The birds from round the hill
To silenced their hunger will.
II
One day, Sir Dino Bill
Fell terribly ill
And Lady Diana Bill
Sobbed, 'Oh, my Bill
Get well soon, my dear Bill'
'Weep not, my lady, weep not, Lady Bill
I'll be well again, ' whispered Sir Dino Bill
So Lady Diana Bill
Dabbed her tears, and went down the hill
To get from a physician, a stress pill
But she forgot to mute their hunger fill
So some birds from round the hill
Flew over to the mill
And lingered untill...

Before Sir Dino Bill
Could staggered out to mute the shrill
Cry of the mill
Lady Diana Bill
Returned with the stress pill
To meet a naked corn mill.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
