August, or: Undignified

A limerick

She never once thought to weigh or refuse.
O, she so glowed when we traded I do's!
Ours was ~ a sweet summer night ~
~ blanketed in soft, silky moonlight ~
Still, ever since then, it's that August she rues!

d’Verse poetics prompt: Sometimes August isnโ€™t recognized

At d’Verse, poets were encouraged to write poems about the month of August. Click here for more information.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. I shall inquire of theย venerableย Archbishop the meaning of it.

    To rue soft silky delights?
    O” August what did you do

    Otherwise a delightful limerick for my ears.

  2. Hehe. Cute take on the prompt David. But up against a sense of humour like that in her spouse, doubtful she could truly rue. ;))
    (p.s. The last four of the five lines are highlighted in yellow, at least here in Reader view; not sure why. just fyi.)
