EPISODE # 2—of the classic story in THREE WEST…!

THREE WEST—EPISODE TWO

He sat next to this and that person,

Shepherding each toward the group…

Including each one in conversing

Just like on a neighborly stoop.

–J.E.C.

He’s glad seeing them join

In discussions on-going…

Becoming aware

Of options right there,

Expanding what they were knowing.

–Jonathan Caswell

Women to sit near, his choices,

Philosophical difference and voices…

That want it dissolved

Instead of solved,

An attitude not held by nurses!

–Jonathan Caswell

MARRIAGE COMMUNICATION??

MARRIAGE COMMUNICATION??

She claimed they discussed it Saturday,

He doesn’t remember that way…

So Monday’s surprise

Hit between his eyes,

It got done….anyway!

PLEASANTRIES ON THE STAIRS

PLEASANTRIES ON THE STAIRS

A fabulous redhead I saw,

The fan I decided to trawl…

She was very busy

And in such a tizzy,

With no reading time at all!

Talking for that minute,

For me had value in it…

She was alive and smiling,

Positively beguiling

And real discussion was in it.

HOME VISITATION

HOME VISITATION

 

My wife received a home visit

With conversation exquisite…

When I came back

The discussion track,

Was on our marriage (how is it?).

This third-year medical student,

Attentive and most prudent…

Took a few notes

Including some quotes,

Respectful, she was not im-pudent.*

She’d not been to Douglas before,

Said so as we met at the door…

It must be “thrillage”

To visit our village,

Will she come to visit it more?

 

–Jonathan Caswell

*Normally the word “impudent” has the first syllable accented when said:          IM-pud-ent.  I have changed the accent onto the second syllable (im-PU-dent) to keep the rhythm of the stanza intact.
