a speckled bat and a tame duck
eat at my hearthstone
some day may forget
their food and drink
or, the house door left unshut,
the duck may run till it's found
the horn's sweet note ant the tooth of the hound
I bear a burden that might well try
younger that do all by rule
wandering- witted fool
But pray to God that they ease?
My great responsibilities.
inspired by W.B. Yeats's songs for a fool
