They Seek Him Here

Scarlet Pimpernel: 7th July 2021

They seek him here, they seek him there
They seek that scarlet varlet everywhere
Up the vales and o’er the downs
They scale the towers in all the towns
They question players and Shakespearean clowns
Through sunny days and even gales
Through England’s land and into Wales
In ladies’ bowers where nobody sins
They whisper spells while they turn widdershins
Oh where, oh where can that varlet be
That wherever they look they cannot see?


75 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Prompt: Widdershins
