Early One Morning.


“Your late!” she said
As she stood at the dining room door,
Me awash in the sea of Poetry.
This vision of loveliness,
Dressed tightly in her blue, towelling robe,
Hair unkempt and not yet combed,
And downstairs an hour before the norm!!
“What do you mean late?” I enquired,
“Well aren’t you going shopping,
You’re normally gone before this”
“No not today” said I.
“Why not, you always go on Saturday?”
“I know” I said,
“But today is Friday!”

  • L. B. Mek

    how I cherish the day my eyes found your poetry, Andy
    thank you for the chuckle
    and this warm poetic smile, I will carry
    for most of my day

    • Goldfinch60

      Most honoured Mek.
      If I have made you chuckle that is great, laughter is so important in life.

      Ah!!! You have to be clever when they fire these trick questions at you.

    • Accidental Poet

      Everyday is Saturday, except when it's Friday. 👍Awesome song Andy, love it.

        True AP when we were at work Friday was POETS Day "Push Off Early Tomorrows Saturday"

        Hope you're not trying to gaslight her. It really was Friday, wasn't it?

        • Goldfinch60

          It certainly was Friday Bella, looking back from what happened this could be part of the start of my wife's dementia.

            Dear Andy, I should have seen your comment about the poem, then I would have known that it was one from the past and not current. I\'m so sorry for my flippant remark, and your\'re right, it could have been an early warning sign.
