Heading to the castle with awe

Approach

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a large, almost-symetrical, castle with cylindrical towers dominating the landscape.

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “A Gull Goes Up” by Léonie Adams: liquid, head, glitter, wings, desperate, distress, heart, cost, entrancing, longing, desire, freight

We’re on the road for adventure

Longing to see castles and forts

Desire for fun, fear for censure

Of glittering places all sorts

Gardens with entrancing features

Longing to see castles and forts

Our wings fly, forget the teachers

We take our time and no distress

Gardens with entrancing features

We know our way more or less

Heading to the castle with awe

We take our time no distress

There it is just our lucky paw

With all the longings of our hearts

Heading to the castle with awe

In the museum with the verse

We’re on the road for adventure

With all the longings of our hearts

Desire for fun, fear for censure*
