Lament For The Planet

Formal structure and cadence and rhyme scheme. It’s much harder than it looks.

I miss the days past
so ripe with promise
so doomed not to last
like worn tatamis
curled at edge with age
like the ancient page
crackling apart
lines we all know by heart
steward the earth
we claim the domain
though the care, disdain
