Oh, Thank You

It’s quite beautiful,
a very delicate porcelain
well turned by a dedicated hand.
The floral white and blue
are my favorite colors,
and the shape elegantly fuses
form and function.
I will forever treasure
and take good care of this piece of art,
for it is just as precious,
they say,
as my master’s slops within.

In this Year of our Lord, 1775,
your humble servant,
William.

 

 

 

 

Dennis Herrell writes both serious and humorous poems about his life in this civilized society. (Poking fun at himself is almost a full-time job.) He especially likes to look at the small things in everyday life that make us (him) so individual and vulnerable.
