The transition from melancholic
to a more cheery bucolic
is enough to make one
It is true fair readers, my
words seem uncommonly shy
of the expression jovial
or the metaphor convivial.
So forgive the lack of badinage
on this or any other page.
And yes, do feel free
to spoof, rip and parody
all the poems which are morose –
after all, they are open source!
You ask me for happy verse at the risk of receiving contrived rhyme such as this. Take heed.
