Cocoon


ONE SINGLE IMPRESSION

COCOON!
(A Cinquain)

Cocoon.
Leaf-like, misshapen.
Shuddering, twisting, scratching.
Emerging crumpled and surprised.
Butterfly.

THE LOVESICK POLICEMAN

This romantic song is sung by just such a policeman in one of my melodramas.

To the tune of 'And the Band Played On.'

My heart went bump!/ I can still hear it thump,/ And I seem to sway./ She looks so smart/ It's affecting my heart/ In the nicest way./ If she should discover/ I'd suit as a lover/ I'd gladly give her all my pay!/ This crime doesn't matter!/ The whole world could shatter!/ I'd shout 'Hooray!'./

I'm in the Service,/ But still I get nervous/ When she appears!/ She's captivating!/ I'm constantly stating/ My doubts and fears./ I know I'm a tough guy/ A bit of a rough guy/ And she is the queen of her peers!/ But I'd be elated/ If we could be mated!/ I'd shout 'Three cheers!'/

I am bowled over!/ I once was a rover,/ Now this occurs!/ I feel so tender/ That I'd like to send her/ Some jewels and furs!/ It may sound excessive,/ But I feel possessive;/ A tom-cat who's nothing but purrs!/ My whole body's dancing!/ I feel like romancing!/ I'll shout 'I'm hers!'/

Hi Brenda. I like your Cinquain. This was a good subject for doing that form and it should have been a fun write for you.

Thank you about your comment on my first verse. That has a double meaning; it works as a life summary for us humans also.

The Lovesick Policeman would make a nice CW song here in the States. Thank you. :)

I love your cinquain. Exactly how it goes. And from that misshapen blog emerges pure beauty.
