Hope

Banner December 2020

Let’s drink our egg nog and forget

The moment when we two first met.

More Jubliant days lie ahead

Our yearning for them we must whet.

So let us have our daily bread

And bide our time for now instead

Of cringing over our stark past

When we first walked where evil led.

We’ll sail our ship with noble mast

And hope this moment will avast

For it is an unwelcome churl

Which struck with an unwelcome blast.

Quite unlike a fair lovely girl

Or jade or ivory or pearl

Neither archduke nor prince nor earl

Can withstand this most noisome whirl.

I got the idea, for this one, to write a Rubaiyat, based upon Robert Frost’s ‘Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening’.
