a poem for you

Today I decided

To write a poem

For

You.

I don’t really know

What you want

To hear.

You never did tell me.

A rhyming couplet just might make you smile,

And I haven’t written one for a while.

A haiku maybe?

A reflection just for you.

To bring me to mind.

Maybe you want a familiar refrain,

Beating in pent time to old Shakespeare’s brain.

Today I decided

To write a poem

For

You.

All I need now is

What you want

To hear.


Jena Ren / Jenny Guilford – 2021
