Swallows and Amazons


Pursued by Swallows
We used to sit there
Bereft of ideas
Before throwing our poems
In the river
Whether complete or not.

Now we talk of Amazons
And nodding daffodils
Rattling words like rods
Across the river
With our pencils
Becoming slender daggers,

Chasing pirates
Across our dreams
