pastoral

 

not possible the rainy days

the law’s delays

and the sour contumely of erratic ways

 

theme and spheres

with a violin accompaniment

in the sports arena

 

it’s a capital idea

would you from my one ideal

draw the line that figures us my dear

 

the canon told the vicar

and the parish runes were told

in the vicarage pastures

once or thrice
