A Pantoum For Joan
Joan’s home will be a castle
after she’s done it up.
With pebbles and shells instead of marble
it’ll be lovely but
after she’s done it up
she’ll be fidgety as sea foam.
It’ll be lovely but
she won’t stay long, knowing Joan.
She’ll be fidgety as sea foam
scooped in children’s hands.
She won’t stay long, knowing Joan.
Let’s build a sand campervan.
Scooped in children’s hands
with pebbles and shells instead of marble,
let’s build a sand campervan.
Joan’s home will be a castle.
