“A Classic Poem for Centuries to Come?

“A Classic Poem for Centuries to Come?

One final poem

to end the year.

“Will it be a Haiku?”

Have no fear

it’s too long for that!

“Will it be a Tanka?”

No.

“A sonnet?”

No.

“Will it be recited fondly

in a hundred years’ time?”

No.

“So, not that good a poem, then?”

No. Not that good –

merely a few words in order put;

that were written by my fair hand,

or my left foot.

  1. I wish! My poetry would fly if my left foot had a try.
