The Saurian Festival

I was looking down the driveway
As the sun decided to come on out
Then off to one side of the concrete
Where small branches lay all about
Something moving caught my eye
And so I walked down to the piles
There were a hundred little lizards
Looking up with such gentle smiles
Singing “give thanks to a warm day
Come and join our Saurian Festival”
I thought it strange they were there
I have never seen so many, after all
Singing “have you seen Henry’s tail,
Bloodied and wriggling the avenue?
Jenn has a bad eye and gammy leg
But she’s still much spryer than you”
Then the sun put on his blackest coat
And went off to the Rose and Crown
For to get the cheapest first shout in
And to grin as he supped it all down
Singing “Repair to our little houses”
They suggested I should do the same
So without fear or urgent movement
They returned from whence they came

i love this, hints of summer to come, while up north we're about to freeze our own tails off.

i wish i knew how you managed to be so precise in your writing, yet it flows with complete ease. trade secret, i guess.
