The Spirit of Hornby, A metaphor.

Opines a judge d'oefs, “eggs”.
Nidus* of ideas incubate viable community.

Before all, stewardship, and then
Small enterprise, governance and social services

Small community, a laboratory seeking
to meet needs and be light on the land

Interwoven with the dance of togetherness;
(you trod on my foot), the dance goes on.

A metaphor

*nidus: place in which insects etc. deposit eggs;
place in which spores or seeds develop. See NEST
