Sonnet: Infirmity

A bug is bugging me: it is not time
To die just yet. How gray the winter sky
This solstice beating down on me, oh my,
Just time enough to spin another rhyme.
Far off a church bell mournfully is pealing
Monotones appropriate to this day ā€“
Iā€™m tired: too sick, too weary ā€“ though I may
Yet find within myself some comic feeling
Neither cynic nor harsh critic could resist:

[Hata Bildir]
