Grickle Grackle

Grickle grackle mawn
spreads glow across hills,
all bark and tweet until the
coming of the mungled breath 
of Boreas does break the 
spines of groves, and darks 
the valleys so with the 
pickle packle puddles of
thin hope, shreds of life
crackle and push of green
arrives through the sponge
of this munged quaggle.

  16. I like that line “pickle packle puddles”. What could be more fun than puddles. What kid doesn’t like puddles. It brings out the kid in me.
