Running Poem R105

Swallows are chirping –
Humans are sniffling –
Shielded from wind gusts in woods

Is It Better to Love and Lost, Than Never to Have Loved at All?

O Shakespeare!
Difficult questions poseth thee!
But relevant,
And relevant for eternity,
Which I suspect will keep thee,
Relevant for eternity.

 

But is it such a difficult question?
Perhaps only if the answer had to be binary.
A Yes or a No.
Which wouldst not be faireth
Given ’tis one of life’s complicated questions,
For which the universal response
Of “it depends” applieth.

 

But could a binary answer be found statistically,
As if it were a Yes or No mostly,
Or even just in majority?
Perhaps Yes.
But also perhaps No.
‘Twouldst depend
On other details of the Love involved.
How much?
How long?
How strong?
And other details among.

 

So it seems I was wrong.
‘Tis a difficult question, indeed!
Not to mention for some contemplators,
The question if it were ever Love,
That shouldst the loss question precede.

 

O Shakespeare!
Difficult questions poseth thee!
Perhaps I will attempt another,
To attempt to answer,
Instead of this quandary.

 

Let’s see…
How’s about “To be or not to be”?
Let’s see…
If an answer binary
Were easier to find
To resolve that bind?

 

Yes!
Yes!
I am convinced ’tis!
Even if by circumstance
The true answer would be
“It depends”

 

But statistically,
By overwhelming majority,
The answer is definitely,
“To be”!

 

‘Tis what “to be”,
That is the question
Of greater difficulty…

Writing poetry –
In a different English –

One not acceptable for
Anything except poetry

No one in park
No one in sight
This winter night
Just the full moon
A snowy world
And I
Existed

Slowing and rising ’til stopped –
Floating for minutes –
In equilibrium with
Jet stream until blown away
