Velvetine Flakes

Garden of rivers, moon could rainbow trees
Sparkling flowers on midnight breeze
Dancing pixies elves and leopards
Making supper for three giant Shepard’s
With fluffy bread and cakes a plenty
All laid out on velvetine with sentry

Sitting round for story or four
A leopard shouts out
Not enough we want more
One giant stands up
Leopard raises his claw
Giant breaths out
And leopard spots are no more

Leopard sits back down
To nurse his frame
And hide his shame
Another giant stands up
‘What a grand thing
This leopard could sing’
‘But no more’ the leopard replies
‘I will never live it down’ and cries

‘But now you are a panther ‘ the giant replies
Leopard still not sure of the demise
Jumps up and begins to sing
Both pixies and elves seeing it all plain
Magic a spell to make it rain
And the next night on velvetine flakes
They all meet again for stories fluffy bread and cakes.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
