 Rosamunde


“Happy Easter!” you said.

I’m trying to smile

as I thank you.


“She’s called Rosamunde”, you said,

a pretty name for a pretty chicken.

I try to smile as I thank you.

for Easter eggs to come.


I wonder if I should show you my new garden,

but perhaps now is not the best of times.

I wonder what Rosamunde will make

of it’s neat patchwork of flowers

and it’s spotless deck. 


I try to smile

as I thank you 

for Rosamunde

your generous gift

of Easter eggs to come.
