rattlingbooks commented on the word merrybegot
by Mary Dalton
When the moon was newing and the night burnt black,
Some rapscallion, some young pelt, some nuzzle-tripe
Set off down the path with the go of a born-again preacher,
Crept in under our apple tree, shinnied on up,
Swift and hungry as a starved mosquito, stripped
And himself playing Don Juan in the kitchen -
Not a sound did he hear -
No apples for winter
And from the look of her belly
A good chance of a merrybegot.
