A Nice Quiet Day

I’ve read collections of poems from the past

To pass the time and to memorize a few.

The anthologies I have by now amassed

Might fill the space in a library or two.

The clock strikes six.  The Angelus bells at last

Are tolling now, as evening begins anew.

We may soon begin our weekly mealtime fast

Until tomorrow the grass is wet with dew.



Here is my very first attempt at a STRAMBOTTO for today’s poetry prompt.
