Refined Sensibilities

Once upon a time
chance and wonder
pleased the earth
Goodness was
favoured over wit
for guilt and shame
were ignorant

It was a fairylike spell
when praise reigned
and thrill
was hardly doubted

Jingle bells!
Jingle bells!

Trees full of leaves
soaked sunshine
and birds never leaved

A blissful offspring
the Victorian home
ideally coloured

– Prayers
before breakfast
– Chai tea
biscuits and butter

Heartfelt words
were eternal
as love is maternal

Thenceforth
heaven and earth
an age of enlightenment
—gave birth
