Nine-Pins and Tipple

Four kegs, they’d left on the rye field’s bare crest
gone were the skittles and the balls of wood.
Four kegs empty of magical brew, strewn
upon the hill’s breasts, where gnomes had stood.

They’d left long ago, twenty years today.
Here’d been a mountain, where now a farm stood.
They had left their tipple as each strike thundered
to lambaste lightning from stacked firewood.

On the rye field’s bare crest now shrouded in snow
beneath a Wedgwood sky, stood kegs of wood.
On the rye field’s bare crest each keg turned stone
marking the bones where rebels once stood.

Gone ‘till tonight, the gnomes and jack tars
until the moon’s magic topped the keg’s wood.
Gone till tonight were the hard balls and pegs
this night spirits would dance where we now stood.

    I get the music, but not quite, and the words, but not all. Here are mysteries I don't want revealed. There's an invitation to stake a claim. I'm in! I know just how to dance to this. What a treasure! Thanks.

    I just had to "fave"; it's to good.

    Tars to lubbers, salts to shore ... lovely and enigmatic weave, Debbie, I thoroughly enjoyed this gem of a tale. I envisioned a hob jigging in the moonlight. Blessings and Happy New Year to you and yours!

    Love the eerie suspense, Deb! with Jack Tar Sailors roaming the land once ashore, the gnome spirits of nightfall and the sweet lyricism of your talent throughout!
