Gabbling Market

Morning and evening
Maids heard the goblins cry:
“Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy … “
                                                                              from ‘Goblin Market’ by Christina Rossetti

H ow often have we found ourselves lost
I n silent fury when we look and listen for shared
D reams of sparkling futures – visions and wild anthems to
D raw and sing us together – but there is only
E ver the old mad clamour for our attention: Come buy!
N o wonder we miss the crazy diamond in the dirt.
