Verse-tly I must apologise
For the lack of rhyme & balladry.
My mind has been prosaically blank
So I haven’t written lately.
There’s a couplet of reasons
Why I lost my quatrain of thought,
That creative efforts came to naught,
But they don’t matter, septet
To say I’m back in stanza-land.
And what really meters now
Is to wish you a lyrical day:
Happy World Poetry Day!
