Al Fresco



                   AL FRESCO


Bring not tables nor chairs
come with hands empt
spread yourself on Mothers blanket
let  dusk dew dampen
wait in whispers
sip slowly an aperitif of blackbird
nibble a starter of rabbit
a main of bats
queen of all desserts
a clan of badgers
all served on a ladle of love.
