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,
To the plots for graves
That, in the end, receive them.
