Quadrille – Not Earth-bound


Covered by earth.
Lord, what a surprise!
Two meters’ worth;
Coins on my eyes –
Bad dream!

Saving the earth,
But what a price.
Love without dearth –
A cruelly hewn device.
Odd scheme!

Sudden rebirth;
The melting of ice –
New earth.
Lazarus’ empty grave…

  1. I like the short lines and the rhyme scheme in your quadrille, Charley, and the way it starts with a shock, a classic nightmare. Let’s hope the sudden rebirth brings a renewed paradise, for Earth’s sake.
