...........................All Around The Roseys


June gloom storm night...
'here we go round the roseys...'
sliding windows' rivulets...
'pockets full of poseys'...
river down, plink down...
'upstairs, downstairs'...
comfort bundling dry eyes...
'one, two, three'...
deep twilight sighs dreams.

'I wish I may, I wish I might'...
Sleep the dream I breathe tonight.
'have the wish I wish tonight'...
