Tracks of a Wandering Mind

Poetry, stories and random thoughts from a wandering mind.

An apology

A friend and I got into an email exchange word battle, each trying to outdo the other in extravagant prose.  I won with this, although she denies it yet!

This little verse now I send,
A grievous wrong forthwith to mend.
That upon the eye I again inflict
The words that flow within this pitch.

By this you see that I decry
My twisted thought which gives the rise
To turn of phrase and fancy flight
That only serves to confuse poor sight!

How then may I begin amends
For that which eye and mind offend?
Why in earnest repartee
Do I embrace amphigory?

Now dear friend, this chorus close,
That I might in your heart enfold
This the object that you must see
Is for my pen my apology.
