Children use tables for all kinds of things: dens, castles, and sail-boats?
Try this one for an adventure on a day when there’s not much else to do
except watch wind ruffle puddles as the rain comes down.
I turned the table over –
hung sails from the legs
halyard, boom and tiller
and sailed to the prairies
one moonlit summer night
the prow divided wheaten oceans
left a wake in whitening grain
to my view the sky was empty
till, with the dawn, a fleet of chairs
skimmed flattening waves
to join me for a feast
