Poetitude

A tender splendor  
this secret place
my garden of  
verse
 
Walled stony plot
thatched verdant ivy
spiraling skyward
the world at bay
 
Where I can tote
a tome
beneath a willow
coax it open wide
 
Whisper ripe words
from poetic vines
capering all about
in velveteen stanzas
 
Wrapping myself up
in some poet's vow
forever safe
 
from prosaic wounds
