The Looking Ground
by David P. Gontar (September 2015)
I drew beside eternity
It held as plain as cake
Thus neighborly and nigh
My heart did quake
Each lady hoists a parasol
Each gentleman his staff
What drolleries do they
Scatter as they pass?
Over the arch they clatter
Bird and branch abound
Ungiving of a backward eye
Upon the looking ground
