A Green Sonnett


Farmer Greening

He Keeps two rows of pennies by his stash
(as good a way as any to keep count)
When down to twenty-five he'll make a dash
replenish the original amount;

And folk visit all hours of the day
to get a penny-count or two of smoke.
(He only asks at night they stay away;
not want to catch the eye of certain folk

Whom, like Sheriff John Brown, might come to hate
our misanthropic hero in farm duds.)
He'll never turn away a needy soul;
he always has the kindness to partake
out of his own supply of 'sample buds'
and help adjust bad attitudes through bowls.

May I someday be just like my hero, folk...

Slainte!

Lady-- I needs a sobriquet for you...

May I call you Lady Rock?!?
No.. Ain't flowing enough..

Well, cutest one ever.. you consistently leave me wondering...

Who IS this Goddess???

Good, the night indeed will be, when SOME inkling comes to this bird's Psyche...

thanks... for lack , currently, of other verbiage.

RARE, for me to be left so vociferously bereft...

SO CONSISTENTLY...

Lady A...

How can one truly respond to such beautiful-- and heart-sent-- missive?

SOMEDAY, LADY... Some Day...

Maybe I'm slow, but... Is that a poem about a drug dealer? Just curious.

Hugs,

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Ashley-- last thing I ever knew you as was "slow", so... um.. define 'DRUG'...
