A Patch of Earth Under a Thatch of Sky

Patch of Earth under a Thatch of Sky Each man must have a corner A patch of earth To call his own Under a thatch of sky. As the Homeless Have their the memories of one, Crawling back through A ball broke window of the mind. And even a leaper Must have his ledge, A bit of rock face To jump from. As sure as the dead, Lay claim, To the plots for graves That, in the end, receive them.
