Day 4 - Wait, There's Even More

Just a reminder: It's okay to leave comments!

Poetry that, is...

I can't help myself when making up silly titles for my blog posts. After all, I'm going to need thirty of these things* and I don't have a lot of spare time to fool with them. Please don't expect greatness and I promise not to disappoint you!

This a poem about Monday because—well, because it's Monday and that's all I could come up with.

It's not a day that many love.
Often blue, or sad,
Or leading to something bad.

You just knew Kristofferson
Would have a Monday frown
After dealing with Sunday mornin' comin' down.

Maybe it's the weekly cycle
Of starting another work-week grind
That brings these feelings to mind.

As I board the train,
"Happy Monday," the conductor sings
As if there is such a thing.

Then, settling in for the long ride ahead,
I close my eyes as we pull away
To sleep, perchance to dream of Friday**.

*I'm trying to write a poem each day for National Poetry Month.

 Here are the poems so far:

   Day 1 National Poetry Month - Kick-off
   Day 2 Haiku, For You
   Day 3 A Poem For Free

** Yeah, I know. It sounds vaguely familiar to me, too.
