A DAY IN MY LIFE: A SONNET

For breakfast I have a cup of tea
And a little granola to satisfy me
For lunch I may have a piece of fruit
Or maybe a carrot or some other root
My dinner depends upon my wife
Whatever she cooks sustains my life
When morning comes I am still asleep
Lost in dreams and in slumber so deep
It is in the afternoon I start my day
Thinking about what I may have to say
I contemplate what it is I might write
Most of my writing is done at night
One thing always does come to mind
Whatever may happen, please be kind

MY DEAR COUNTRY

My dear country, I fear for you
My heart and soul are near to you
The land of the free and of my birth
The last frontier, here upon the earth
