jumping from conclusions

Says the English proverb:
"Look before you leap."
Uttered by Lords a'leaping,
Or maybe Little Bo Peep?

Ah, leaping is a hazard sport
oft performed for thrill.
Leaping is the easy part
It's the landing which can kill.

I leap and leap and leap again,
I do it without thought.
I often leap on limber words
Oh the troubled landings I have bought!

Sorry is a salve-like word,
needed now and then,
To mend those bruises, cuts and scrapes,
so one can leap again.

So if I've landed on your head,
Or maybe in your garden,
Please forgive this leaping lout,
As I humbly beg your pardon.

I really enjoyed you cleverly written write my friend! You have expressed yourself quite magnificently by the leapingness of this piece! What a fascinating poem, one that produces an apology quite wondrously and from the heart! Great Work!!
