JANUARY – Cash Memoranda

[nb this is all written sideways on page]

Alas! How easily things go wrong

A sigh too much, or a kiss too long

And there follows a mist + sweeping rain

And life is never the same again.

[image]

I don’t pretend to teach the age

Its mission or its folly

A task like that requires a sage

My disposition’s jolly.

[image]

How is it that love comes.

It comes unsought, unsent.
