Husband, Where Art Thou?A Sonnet

Besieged with the same question

Rain down the same answer

‘I don’t know’, yet a smile I still plaster,

Hands wrung, oh this life’s predilection!

Songs sung to the moon and the sun

Oh, to be like many a couple made

A voice earnest and sweet ‘please send me a date’

I, comely of dress and yet a dapper prince, there is none.

Alas, dinner for one, could that be so bad?

A solo glass of wine to befuddle my senses

Rushed nuptials, entrapment, the lover’s plight

A life clouded by shadows; one of life’s trenches

No, not for me, how that would give me a fright.

For more moments in springtime. Ah, a maiden’s delight!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time, Sharon
