A Sort-of Sonnet on a Special Day


A Sort-of Sonnet on a Special Day

On this day do you need lists
Lists of things needed to be done
Lists of things avoided & left
Undone, lists of fears & failures

Not just mine and yours, but every
Anxiety & flop of all time?
No way. List gains & outlooks
Buds on the jasmine vine

Hopes, you might say, on this one
Special day, when you green in the
Shadows of December & the sweet
Aromas of baking Sweety
Bonitas from the Emporda

One incense among dozens
& a blessing at the top of the list.



By R Young, special for D.
