 the gypsy poet

campfire nights

      sitting around the campfires
      sharing all those tales
      the story book has ended
      the gypsy sites are gone

      the daisy chains and blossoms
      the birds songs in the trees
      the gypsy ways of talking
      the songs of histories

      sitting in the moonlight
      beneath a spangled sky
      listening to the breezes
      as the wagon wheels roll by

      the pots of cauldron smelling
      the rabbit stew and hops
      the nights under the canvass
      the days on the wagon show within the docks

      the packs of dogs a running
      the ponies on the heath
      the accordion man is playing
      he shows them pearly teeth

      the cards come out and played there
      the lamps of ornate gold
      the shawls of wool and cotton
      the old ways as there told

      the crafts that once were passed on
      the fortune telling queen
      the funeral processions
      after the caravan was burnt n seen

      the artist paints the scene
      the gypsy dancing sweethearts
      the kings and traveling folks
      the brotherhood of means
