On life and its vagaries

Love’s Labor’s Lost

 Love’s Labor’s Lost


Love’s not something new…….

Yet this precious moment is.

Let’s keep it warm.”



Ah, how vibrant the moon looks

And how nice the slight breeze feels

Can’t we trace a hint of mist in the air?

And what’s that  music we hear?


Even the dogs bark in sugary tones

Cicadas can’t but play honeyed notes

Would the bees be left far behind?

They drone of sweet things to come.


Dusk it is, and the sigh of coming night-

Shades the vale, yet a wicked pale light-

Seems to slither and entwine in the grassy glen.

 All seems to be acting   with the sole intent-

Of setting the mood for things subliminal.



 All that to no avail; for the girl responds:



“Thanks for the nice invite lad,

But I’ll pass…………………………….”


(The oaf isn’t bright enough

 To think of protection, is he?)


“………………. Ever get sick in the morn?

Didn’t think so. Go, and sleep tight  boy scout.”
