On The Ethers



We saunter on the ethers
We strut on the stars
We mosey on the planets and strum the guitars

We flutter on the falcons
We soar on the wrens
We ascend on the eagles and hover the Thames

We amble on the pebbles
We skip on the sands
We recoil on the shingles and play baby grands

We teeter on the margins
We flip on the brinks
We waver on the borders and the missing links

We sashay on the byways
We dance on the lanes
We boogie on the skywalks and eat candy canes

We append on the fancies
We hang on the whims
We create on the visions and sing lovely hymns

We zigzag on the warrens
We loop on the rings
We swivel on the halos and do wondrous things
