I’ll Give It a Miss

Yet another sunset over Breydon

Yet another sunset over Breydon

Oh Sammi, Sammi, Sammi dear
What a project set
I’ve thought and thought and thought and thought
But I’ve had no inspiration yet

The solstices, they’re no problem
Summer and winter too
For those I’ll easily whip up a rhyme
I might even whip you up two

But these equinoxes are plain dithering different
And yet they’re not really, cos they’re the same
Equal, see; equal day and equal night
Equal dark and equal light
Blistering difficult this

I’ll give it a miss

    The equinox, you see, my dear,
    has really got me in a box:
    I do not like to praise the night,
    for it giveth me a terrible fright.
    As yet the sun shines half a day
    As if to give me half a ‘nay.’

    Am I heading toward the warmth of spring,
    or the dying of most everything?
    On this doubled day I am caught between
    what they are and what they seem.

    I do not choose the seasonal strife,
    just my life.
