About this time I start to think
about a cup of tea
when all at once I need a drink
and Jock makes it for me.
The humming sound the kettle makes
tells me it won’t be long
Ah here it comes, with home-made cake
Hooray I wasn’t wrong.
In Meeting the Bar at dVerse tonight, Victoria Slotto gives us a well-informed article on Emily Dickinson and common meter. I tried, I really did, but this is all I could come up with. Shame on me. This is the kind of thing my Dad and I used to do all the time – fun it was, but poetry it is not!
I will try again when I am not so weary.
