A MATTER OF ASSUMING
A friend wanting me to explain,
A poem of mine ’bout a train…
Numbers made no sense,
Made it less pleasurable in quatrain.*
I think I assumed too much
On identification and such…
With the system I used
Other folks were confused,
And that garbled the message a touch.
Have to remember not all are rail fans,
When plotting my poetry plans…
For easier cognitions
Making certain the reader understands!
* quatrain…a four-line stanza. Actually, I use this, plus, more often, a five-line stanza in limerick-styled form. 🙂
