Thistle Down Soft – a Pantoum

My love is like a thistle down
velvet silk and soft
wrapped about you like a gown
with thick enduring loft

Velvet silk and soft
but brutal thorn beneath
with thick enduring loft
as that upon the heath

But brutal thorn beneath
as if a wicked trick
as that upon the heath
which tears the thin and thick

As if a wicked trick
My love hides a shadow side
which tears the thin and thick
and fails to confide

My love hides a shadow side
My love is like a thistle down
and fails to confide
Wrapped about you like a gown

  1. Liked your big picture poem, there’s the problem now, isn’t it? How to see the big picture while doing things closer to home that make a difference. I like the tone of grace at the end.
