Simple Duet by Ian M. Emberson

by Pirouette

Five black promontories
fearful in their darkness
jut into our sea
of placid ivory white.
But we sail past them,
secure in our boats
of A minor and C major
sails all trimmed to avoid
shipwreck from accidentals.
Here we are happy
with tight-shut mullioned windows
shielding wet Yorkshire wind,
and walls just thick enough
to absorb the neighbours.
Oh yes
we can luxuriate
dolce sostenuto
in our cosy white-keyed kingdom
where all cows eat grass
and every good boy deserves favour.
