ATAVISTIC, by            
First Line: Four walls for my body
Last Line: Find the way back!


Four walls for my body
To shield me from the cold;
Four walls for my thinking
Lest I grow over bold.

Outside foaming grasses
And moon-frosted sea;
Within, a vase of roses
Trimmed to rigidity.

I dare not cross the lintel
Or open the least crack,
For never could such running
Find the way back!
