Annency-A Tanka - Poem by Margery Rehman

Pretty bourgeois town
Built when leisure was confined
To the upper class
Its cobbled streets reflect
Cultured bygone elegance.

    This is charming Margery. 'Cultured bygone elegance'. What a perfect description of your pretty bourgeois town. Your piece captures the essence of this ancient Japanese form very well indeed. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
