    Weeping
    Watching
    Wond’ring
    Whiff’ling
    Writing
    Wistful
    Woeful
    *.Wonton.*

    One small change, one big effect.

    clever; it’s summer here, the dying days; it’s a good model to work from

              I am learning the pleasures of sleeping in

              Not leaping up at the first bounce of whimsy

              Things can wait.

              The Mad Hatter will still have his ball.

              Blades of grass still grow tall

              If I sleep in.

              There will always be another train pulling in at the station.

              Things will not be rationed any more or less

              If I rest.

              Wendy will still be in Neverland

              & I can still hold your hand a little longer

              If I lie in.

              Dreams will not evaporate.

              Beneficence will flow free.

              The fruit still swell from the trees,

              The lambs still beat.

              If I sleep

              in

                it is rather good, isn’t it? I was too hasty. I should have the courage of my convictions. I may put it up tomorrow 🙂 thanks

                  “the courage of my convictions” is a good line for a poem, too!

                  I’ve put it up, Chelsea, with an acknowledgement to you and David R who inspired one of the lines 🙂 the ‘conviction’ poem will come later 🙂
