After Ghalib   [couplet]

When so proximate to the nest   your snare was hidden
Before even our wings could spread   we were in prison

Semi-Similitude   [gnomic verse]

Everything is like itself
and somewhat like things other
is a human like an elf?
a daughter like her mother?

Fab Four Pedagogy [ditty]

"It's been a hard day's night"
quoth the Beatles pedagogue
adding (avec delight)
"and I've been working like a dog"
