Settle Grim Pettle
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


The pettles settle
Upon a red bed
A bed of red pettles
They remind me - they said

They told me that we are little
Us people in this world
They told me that the world
Was bigger than my mind

The pettles that settle
Upon a red bed
A red bed of pettles
They say and remind me

Of days that will find me
If I find the days
And then settle
As the red pettle
