And the year rolls on -

 From December to April, this blog and I have remained silent, whilst all around the pandemic has raged , regardless.

Perhaps it was the sunshine that prompted me to post today. Who knows? But rather than creating something new, I'm copying a few lines I originally wrote on Alias Jinksy, but they are missing a title. Perhaps any Napple Notes reader who may wander by, could supply one for me? But I shan't be holding my breath, for wanderers may be scarce, hehehe...

 Capricious forces conjure sun and rain 
into eternal conflict. Dark lords and bright
wage their wars, as moon-tides wax and wane
throughout the universe's star-drenched night,
until, by morning, rotund Earth's revolved
in deference to laws decreed long since.
Then sun-flamed beams put shadow-clouds to flight,
their unshed tears like morning mists dissolved,
as Helios, our hero, on his plinth 
stands proud, the great defender of the light.

    1. Hello, oh sprightly Blogpal of tenacious mien! :-) ♥ xx

  2. The best I can come up with is 24/7/365, sorry.

    Slight correction: In line 3, wain should be wane.

    I encourage you to expand these lines into a Petrarchan sonnet, 14 lines of iambic pentameter with the rhyme scheme ABAB ABAB CDECDE

    All you would need are four more ABAB lines.

    1. Thanks for the tip off edit, RWP. :-)
      I think it's a bit late to try for four more lines, as it's my bed time now and boy, do I need some beauty sleep. LOL. But come the morning, I'll give it a go.


Curiosity Cats can leave a whisker here...but not before noting, please, that I choose to have an award free, tag free, meme free blog. But by all means, talk to me by email - I love to 'chat'...
