Land

March 4, 2020

to land on land
somewhere inland
say the highlands of Scotland
or the midlands of England
or the island of Ireland
or even Newfoundland
but to find land
on which to land and stand and understand

then there’s Finland and Lapland
and headlands and heartlands
or even New Zealand
but still to find land
on which to land and stand and understand

even Poland and Matabeleland
and Holland and dreamland
and even Disneyland
and Tigerland (yellow and black)
a fish, a punch, a job, a pitch
and so to find land
on which to land and stand and understand

The Holy Land and the Badlands
farmland and the Promised Land
homeland, motherland, fatherland
parkland and wasteland
Graceland and no man’s land
Greenland and Iceland
and Nowhere Land and Neverland
but to find land
on which to land and stand and understand
