The Collected Poems1960Clownlike, happiest on your hands,

Feet to the stars, and moon-skulled,

Gilled like a fish. A common-sense

Thumbs-down on the dodo's mode.

Wrapped up in yourself like a spool,

Trawling your dark, as owls do.

Mute as a turnip from the Fourth

Of July to All Fools' Day,

O high-riser, my little loaf.Vague as fog and looked for like mail.

Farther off than Australia.

Bent-backed Atlas, our traveled prawn.

Snug as a bud and at home

Like a sprat in a pickle jug.

A creel of eels, all ripples.

Jumpy as a Mexican bean.

Right, like a well-done sum.

A clean slate, with your own face on.

I was looking up on another site what moon-skulled could mean and someone wrote that it could refer to the shape of babies head in utero. SO \"o high-riser, my little loaf\" might have to do with bread like bun in the oven. I read the poem thinking of it this way and it makes sense.

The whole poem is describing her unborn child so \"o high-riser,my little loaf\" is a metaphor for the child growing inside of her. The \"high riser\" part could also be a refernce to her hopes for the child, like any mother she wants it to achieve and do well in life. To use a slightly less eloquent expression, she has a bun in the oven :P
