Jack and Jill

by Jem Croucher
On the South Downs
high, top the hill
we walked around
the Jack and Jill
two windmills there
and standing still
though long time now
since flour to mill

The view gave all 
the eyes to fill
where we took stock
of our free will
November yet
not really chill
we wandered freely
with no ill

And here atop the
Sussex hill
by the two windmills
Jack and Jill
we live and breathe
and have our fill
for joie de vivre
as this is brill
