                                                                What Lurks Within

                                               Like a genie-- the dust-encaptured sun

                                               Has danced her way into the stony walls.

                                              The single window was a challenge to take on

                                              But the farmboy nicked the door to please his pa.

                                              At first glance there was nothing in the room

                                              It seemed a grey stone remnant of the past

                                             Beauty slept within the stall that wept for broom

                                             A lovely lass the boy could not resist

                                             The napping milkmaid dream-giggled with delight

                                             But awake she saw him through the hay-dust mist

                                             The buxom lass with smiling kindness –hugged him tight

                                             “When you 're ten years old I'll teach you how to kiss !"
