“SHIPS AHOY!” a poem October 29, 2018! Mo(o)nday!
Night doth “fall!” (Life is OVER!)
No more joy! No more “clover!”
No more walks – with you-in-The-Sun;
No more kisses!? No more fun!
Just a black and endless mock,
Of what was promised – by the clock!
Life is dreary – purpose – less;
Everything!-is – a big mess!
Gone to bed! I must be dead;
There are no “sugarplums” in my head!
BUT! WAIT! What’s THIS? The Morning Light:
Things are SUDDENLY! gay and bright;
The birds do sing; creat-ures rejoice:
THERE IS AN ECHO (pause) A-BEAUTIFUL VOICE,
Declaring: “You-goofy – silly-human-boy!”
Ships ahoy! 🙂 – Yay!
