My Man

My Man

Looking back, he really was romantic 
strong arms laden,
uncomplaining, toting (my) beach essentials,
and I, brazen
did follow, admiring view from behind,
a fair maiden
quite taken with her man; today more so -

sweetly wadin’
through sand and surf, his burden heavier,
yet unshaken
for he’s quite blessed with six children and wife.

Linked with “Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, Fussy Little Forms - Cavatina”.  10 syllable line followed by a rhyming 4 syllable line repeated at least 3 times, ending with a 10 syllable line. 

We are on our annual family vacation on the Outer Banks of NC - Ocracoke. We DO help haul our “day camp” to the beach - but John seems to still handle the bulk of the stuff - we were pondering the possibility of a charcoal grill... can you believe he said “No”?!  Ha ha.

Absolutely adore it, Margaret. Great job on the form, too... Rhymes that are not obvious and excellent line breaks. Yay!
Hope you have a fantastic vacation. Today is the last day of ours. Bittersweet...

Like a couple of teens in love, heading for the beach. Margaret, if this is truly about yourself and hubby, you guys are both blessed. At any rate, I see here seven of his blessings, his sweet wife and then the six kids. Nice writing for the form as well.

Margaret said...

Yes. It’s about personal experience. Sounds like you are greatly blessed as well.
