Hare In-sight – Pantoum

And he thinks nobody will heed
Slipping out passed the pig-net curve
Hemming the field, folding his form –
In the furrow, flat as a seed

Slipping out passed the pig-net curve
I watch – whisker’s flicking the air
In the furrow, flat as a seed
While one eye hot-fixes the hill

I watch – whisker’s flicking the air
Hemming the field, folding his form –
While one eye hot-fixes the hill
And he thinks nobody will heed

“A Pantoum is a type of poem with a verse form consisting of three stanzas. It has a set pattern within the poem of repetitive lines.

The pattern in each stanza is where the second and fourth line of each verse is repeated as the first and third of the next. The pattern changes though for the last stanza to the first and third line are the second and fourth of the stanza above (penultimate). The last line is a repeat of the first starting line of the poem and the third line of the first is the second of the last.” – Writers’ Glossary – Pantoum definition.
