Orpheus Ritual Cave Tour Guide - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

welcome to my office
how do you like my office?
my cave is my office?
visit as often as you need?

every day performing guide...
duties an Orpheus ritual slide...
into adventure underworld...
book if you please no priour notice?

aircon a steady 8 to 11 degrees
celsius year round to please
scenic underworld tours amaze

'modern people have funny
ways of earning money'
salary is summer job honey

    :) usually octave and sestet if writing in this form written rapidly on the same day; your used to me doing that, have written many poems on line while talking to you, or later from conversations with you :) (Report) Reply

    I remember the exchange. :) So, you think octave one day and sestet the other. That's interesting. :) (Report) Reply
