“ The Consequence ” ~ of forgetfulness ~

You come to believe

Thru serene control,

Had then so achieved

A mind now set bold,

Held made concede

Put memory on hold,

Save too little known

Of significance told,

When recall has flown

To a mindless absent,

Tho spirit may mourn

Fickle fate will consent,   

With memory conform

To consequence bent,

Of forgetfulness shorn!

“ Disposition ” ~ in want of serene stay ~

Weighing ever so

Has me suffer choke,

With a disposition

Liken to a yoke,

Refusing to give way

While effort I restrain

A temperamental sway,

Begs I plead not in vain

That I may have a say,

In want of serene stay!
