My Word of the Month poem for July

Hi everyone,

With thanks to Jane Yolen for her poem two days ago that sparked this poem, here’s my contribution for July.

Time to Celebrate

Today I wrote one line first rate.
Pop the cork! Let’s celebrate!

Some days – most days, I must confess –
my words spill out a jumbled mess.

No matter how I stress and strain,
there’s little joy and too much pain.

But today? I wrote one line first rate.
Pour the wine! Let’s celebrate!

Yesterday I must admit
the words were ugly, weak, unfit.

The day before was worse than that;
too much bafflegab and fat.

But today I wrote one line first rate.
Lift your glass! Let’s celebrate!
