Poetry Pleases: ABC Poem

Joyce Worsfold's brief alphabetic poem contains a truth beneath the surface innocence.

A rippled pond reflects a mackerel sky
Burnished and gleaming like polished plate
Cool and placid, convoluted and green
Dreaming damp.
Endowed abundantly with submerged life.

We see only surface innocence.
