Words from the Weary

When writing a poem every day,
You shouldn’t let time slip away.
	For what is required
	Gets lost when you’re tired
And thoughts tend to wander and stray.

Yet hours at times disappear
When events and constraints interfere.
	So you dash off some lines
	Hoping when the sun shines
They won’t sound quite as bad as you fear!

    Very clever Ilene! I've never had the courage to attempt a double LIMERICK, so, BRAVO I say! Best wishes, Keith

    Such a conundrum. Can so relate. :)

    Nice rhymes - but I think you should haveing written "I" in the last stanza instead of "They".

    You've done it again, my dear. Lovely limerick...and yes...I've tried writing when I'm tired...boy...what a mess. However, sometimes those words just fly away never to return. I can't tell you how sad that makes me. I enjoyed this very much. Hugs.
