The Towne Square

Updated on July 2, 2015

Onst I were a workman in our hush-ed little towne

Handy and sucht were I withal and sundry

It came to pass that I were caused to build a scaffolding

Folded neatly, seated in the towne's söote florid square

Never told why, just did my job quite faire

Soonly were I caused to braid a rope

From reeds and such

From round the stagnate water

A pond, really, not much more than that

Where the dragonflies made trusty crosses

On the rounded stones ashore it

T'was mostly fine the day I were caused

To drag mine rope up sturdy stairs

Of the scaffold onst were I caused to make

Still newish nowe, no fading greys along her timbers

Barely creaked when I mete the arm

I were caused to make that crooked arm

With plated steele to keep her stille

And will to one day reckon why

She stood above that door

A door in the floor for pitye's sake!

Not an undercroft nor base-ment round this little towne

So I never seen a floorish door

And nowhere did it seem to go

But to the air below and lo

Eventual to the ground and dust

For 'neath that scaffold, grass no longer growen

For sun and rain rare reaches earth

I crafted her so perfect, not a creak nor crick

Nary a nick, for no one goes to visit her

Mine perfect craft, t'were caused to make

So I looked about, alone amongst mine daffodils

Upon that craze-y door I built, wherefore I cannot say

Were caused to make a slyding loop

Off that reeden, scratchy rope I twined

Then caused to place her round mine neck

Alone I looked cross our faire square

Alone I tautened loopened rope

To feel her scratch mine adam's apple

Alone were caused to seke my door

And lone were caused the handle loosed
