Villanelle: Lodged In Our Cockles Aladdin Lamps Hum


Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum
Always to heart stings awakened to soothe
That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

When in dark lonesome nights owl hoots knock glum
None to hear silent sobs shut in tight booth
Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum

Some bounceable dame caught in a doldrum
Each secret finger on the Djinn's sharp tooth
That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

Some invoke the lordly prince staid and glum
And make him slave to every wish in truth
Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum

If this right to steal some solace and plum
Were this not a gift from high above a truth
That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

How right we then all the fanfare and drum
For those few well-bred and armed to the tooth
Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum
That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
