The Invitation (2 Rondelets) Poem by Diane Hine


Someone’s coming
pogglebonk frog to quell your song.
Someone’s coming
to undertake your unbecoming.
A lady of the billabong
or tiger snake – the night is long,
Someone’s coming.

I’ll be right there
as soon as I determine whither.
I’ll be right there -
I’m still deciding what to wear.
Skin or scales! I’m all adither
should I hop or should I slither,
I’ll be right there.
