rosy hips

rosy hips  (  a  p o e t r y  o f  p o e m  )




hairy hands & fingertips

fairylands & sinking ships

sputtered dust & monkey rust

fuddles in the crinkled quips


trouty pouts & rubber lips

fishy tricks & scissor kicks

scattered flaps & plaster cracks

patter on as trickled drips


silky daze & tangled twists

milky ways & willow wisps

buckled shoes & chuckled through

cuckoo in the morning mist


sticky feet & squiffy scripts

toffee plods & wonky trips

grazing scrapes & hazy shapes

shaking at the quaking fist


droopy walls & loosened grips

loopy lutes & building bricks

spotted socks & flops in frocks

fodder for the bullish whips


thirsty work & thirsting thrips

squiffy spit & bursting drips

wonky flows & on she goes

autumn calls with rosy hips
