Becoming Ordinary


There is no harm in trying it
What do you have to lose?

but you can't quit
what else would you do
to fill the time?

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
