La Maison des auteurs

"La Maison des auteurs," a fountain site
Essential to the bicyclists of Hull,
Has posted smiling portraits to annul
These morbid little dream-tales that I write,
These verses that a poet would indict.
The early-morning scribes whom cameras cull,
In this town, pen with charm, and charm has pull
To strand a lesser typist in the night.

For anyone with eyes, the path is clear:
Cater to the sunlit norm, and reap
The recognition that is linked with day.
But I stop for the fountain, not the cheer,
In autumn cold while charming people sleep;
Then, guided by the moon, I ride away.
