Homage To Carol Ann Duffy - Poem by Panmelys

It's always worth one's while to absorb vibes,
Vibrations, from other people's work and lives,
Last listening was a reading by a poet laureate
Whose poetry sang sagas and ballads alive
With sonnets of inspired magical lines
Some borrowings and modern happenings: great
Sense of humor, lurking behind tragedy
As Greek chorus: Goethe's Faust permeate
Within today's metamorphosis:
Humorous shades: soundly wrapped comedy
Hive of bees: fairy tales' oasis:
Cheshire cat's faded smiles: a parody
Of poetic craft and art to which I draft
This flaming tribute from my heart!
