Is it sunlight streaming through the blinds?
Downstairs, a breakfast we must find,
All quiet coffee and not-straight lines
The prettiness of pretty minds,
Show me your palms and I’ll divine
If a stitch in time indeed saves nine.
I find it easier at times
To think in verse and dream in rhymes
Each letter on the creeping vine
Paints pictures, which all intertwine
Of pretty girls with pretty eyes
And sages young and sages wise,
And pretty boys who sing me lies
“The hat is full,” the crow surmised.
A conversation worth but a dime
But a penny more would be sublime,
A salad with some extra lime
And Valentines that feel like crimes
It’s just a small molehill to climb
A tortoise race, all in good time
Some mint to complement the thyme.
A Mad Hatter-esque piece, the poem focuses more on celebrating the versatility and possibility of poetry. The consistent rhyme scheme and playful nature of it highlight a light and whimsical mood as opposed to portraying a consistent message.
