Sonnet for a Box of Tissues and Other Tissue Box Poems

Updated on October 22, 2014

A Sonnet for a Box of Tissues - a Poem About the Importance of a Tissue Box

The tissue box poetry is flowing ... I just looked at a box of tissues and realized how a tissue box figures in so many situations yet is so under appreciated.

I followed the Shakespearean 14 line sonnet format fairly closely but excuse me if it's not perfect.

--- Below this poem are other original poems and links to other poems about tissues!

Sonnet for a Box of Tissues

Sonnet for a Box of Tissues

What's expected of a box of tissues?

Passed from one to other without complaint

She must be ready for any issues

Drop of dew, a tear, a sniffle, a faint

At an occasion somber, she is there

Aiding grieving folks in their dignity

They appreciate but do not thank her

She's gracious in her magnanimity

On joyous days she provides comfort too

Spilled champagne, wiped up quickly 'fore the toast

The bride looks shocked; I think her blush is true

Onward, the grand affair, let's make the most

A long way to go before emptiness

Then swapped for clone, again to give caress

A Tissue Limerick - Number 2

A tissue box sat on the table

Waiting to help as it were able

A woman who was very dressy

Was also incredibly messy

So a tissue kept salsa off her sable

The Tissue Box is Lonely

The tissue box is lonely

It wants to be of use

But it's quite OK if only

An allergy is your excuse
