Sabbath

Fallow field turned;
broken, bruised, and burned
by bright Apollian heat.
 
Some call it abuse
to leave in such disuse
what should brim-fill with wheat.
 
Yet divine sense demands
relief from workers’ hands;
a sabbath-rest for land:
a chance for brief retreat.


a variation of a Welsh tradtional Rhupunt verse
(aab ccd eef— variation: aab ccb ddb with third stanza of eeeb)


One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
