Arounderings

In the grounds of our block on a cold Winter's morn
there's the sound of a small yet quite mighty machine --
Gardener Bill is out, mowing the round lower lawn;
pigeons watch from the beech trees, their amber eyes keen.

There's the sound of a small yet quite mighty machine
with a motor revolving a circular blade;
pigeons watch from the beech trees, their amber eyes keen;
squirrels stand up and twirl in the conifer glade.

With a motor revolving a circular blade,
it's quick time to complete this aroundering chore;
squirrels stand up and twirl in the conifer glade,
while a spiralling rook-flock calls out an awed "Caw!"

It's quick time to complete this aroundering chore;
we turn on an electric ring, start making tea,
while a spiralling rook-flock calls out an awed "Caw!" --
there'll be biscuits for all, choccy Hobs, two or three.

We turn on an electric ring, start making tea;
Gardener Bill is out, mowing the round lower lawn;
there'll be biscuits for all -- choccy Hobs, two or three --
in the grounds of our block on a cold Winter's morn.

Ah, the gospel of Caw makes an appearance! And I'm pleased to make the acquaintance of choccy Hobs! They sound wonderful!

I have a confession to make. I make my tea with a teabag plunked into a mug of cold water, which aforesaid mug I then put into the microwave for a minute and a half.

Well, in any event, a delightful pantoum,
dissipating the dark and erasing the gloom!
Here's a chorus of plaudits for dear Coo & Co,
metric heaps of "Huzzah!"; "Mighty fine!"; "Way to go!"

This is so delightful. When I find your poetry, I am eager to unwrap the gift. No matter the pattern, the style, or the subject, I am lifted by its elegance. It is beautiful. I am put at peace. I sigh and breath in new life. Thank you.
