Poem: Blunder weighs this or that true prize arise
Glee plummeted as thundered heaven’s tears fell,
Dusk hides brightness flowers absence of hued tints,
Upon pathway steps grow weary fallen logs befell,
Eyes cast downward before knows not of merriment.
Alas, two days traveled distance seems as yesterday,
Ahead great wonders promise of treasure and surprise,
Bands of robbers thrust capturing quarry great sway,
Strange creatures freely roam growls plunder contempt.
Break of dawn skies full falling rain shadowy clouds hide,
Tweet of birds harmonizing lack songs filling full air of glee,
Distance boat ghosts along shoreline seen vision aside, aha,
A friend stands nearer close than far as cause gives reason.
‘Tis time is plight crowded nigh narrow wondered path,
Pond’s friendship ripples reveal lilies float wonderment,
‘Twas once path calm of winter’s fatigue pen shares wrath,
Door sways hither and forth backward forward between.
Task alas glee reason not plums of gold nor jewels,
Leprechaun’s delight of prize held close tee-hee echoes,
Fairies dance sing with angels muse tap upon this fool,
Alas, glee fills laughter forth rings true of season ha-ha . . .
