A Naboland Alphabet
A is for airborne, an arctic affair,
B is a box for a battered brown bear.
C is a clock that cannot count figures,
D is a desk for a diary, dumb diggers.
E is the earth through snow, etched in enamel,
F fur and a flask and a filigree camel.
G gives grey serge, grey print and grey sky,
H - here's a hare-mould, hull, herbs hanging dry.
I am implements, inclement weather, and ink,
