A Bower of Willow

A Bower of Willow

Let me weave a bower of willow at your gate

And bring stars new plucked and shining in a bowl

Let me journey far to strange exotic lands

And bowing low lay silks and spices at your feet

 

But none of these; in a dim and darkening world

Of ranting tabloids, greedy bankers and blathering bishops

And celebrities shouting and waving merrily

On a bright vehicle plunging to catastrophe

 

Let us paddle our small boat as best we can

On a slowly running river of contendedness

A little house, a garden, a dog, a cat

You ‘let’s go shopping’ and me ‘yes let’s’
