A Shirt From The Wardrobe


Not worn for many years,
Suddenly grown over sized,
The sleeves are hung from,
The shoulders, the junction,
At the arm pits look as the sacks,
A tailor made perfect piece,
Outsized to be a farce,
A shirt, which is kept as a souvenir,
Once fitted and radiated the curves,
Not really collapsed, but gets bigger.

    Suddenly grown over sized
    I am sure it is a good sign to keep in shape. Problem is usually the other way and that is what I face. Beautiful poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
