My New Telescope
I sit here master of all I survey,
In my old leather chair with my new telescope.
Gleaming in the sun it is a beacon of my life. On stilts.
From here on the third floor, I can read the names of the boats.
The Shipping Forecast tells me it’s becoming good.
I can see that. I can see the clouds in Dogger!
My telescope stands tall and proud on a tripod.
It’s mahogany I think, but when we did those things in school, I didn’t bother.
