From an Old Legend
--Bill Knott 
let's cut some graftings
from off these trees and
uproot those hedgerows
and hold their foliage go
armed with camouflage as
we approach the castle
hoping they won't notice
our smirks and winks
our shining eyes maybe
leafsecreted we can plant
quick shrubs and shoots
around its impregnable
walls then waltz away leaving
their fortress enforested
