Ode to a Snail

How tentative, O snail,
your trembling head a'glisten,
your feelers quiver then touch ground
as, rapt, you listen

As spirals thrice your mail
like rings round glorious Saturn,
my sandal does not please you much;
it fits no pattern

O snail, you turn and go
the very way you entered;
counter-clockwise now, instead,
all slow, all centred
