~ Baroque b-q
~Day and days
~and wile and ways
~days and wiles and ways
~whisps of camphor dignant
~two snifters of cognac
~softens the moon, its roon and stays
~pledge to the kindred
~fledgling to a mood
~raising there a tepid smile
~and rue
~and rhyme, and nine
~herbal baths
~the nodding daffodils' startled laughs
~engender a side-path time
~toss away most flippantly
~the boomerang returns
~where We are
~some less regards
~where They may decidedly be
~contents to books undone
~devil may care and suggestion dares
~but none
~a day and days
~are ways and wiles and days
