'Twas the day before Recurse
And and in all the homes
Online Glitchen were working
And some writing pomes
As I left my house, to start my route rounds
I found Faereluth on my street - and barnacles on the ground
and eggs, and I thought "someone's bags are full"
Said "Good morning :) " and dashed off to the next street down
my list, but I wondered, in the back of my head
What was really going on, on my home street and then
Faereluth IMed and greeted oblivious me
"Good morning to you, and Happy Recurse Eve"
"I'm visiting the streets of my Glitchen friends
on my list of who's online, every one, and then
Harvesting their resources, leaving all of it for them."
"How sweet!" I exclaimed." What a lovely idea!"
Sharing the love, the stuff, imagination and cheer.
A great way to mark the day, to Faereluth I did say
While quietly glad that my name starts with A
After travelling the loop I came back to my street
To find barnacles, jellisacs, eggs & some peat
All stacked on the Urth, and even more sweet
A bundle of grain tied up all nice & neat.
So if you enter the world on next Recurse Eve
You might find a Glitch dropping things at their feet
And not hoarding (not hoarding!) just giving and kind
I ask that you pause and please pay them some mind
And remember sweet Faereluth who first spent this day
Giving up time and energy to bring goodness your way
Or join in the fun spreading all this good cheer
And hope I write better poems by this time next year ;)
