Poetry 101, Day 4: Seconds


Seconds tick as I await

Anxious for our second date

Pretty ball gown for the dance

Will delight the second glance

Or to hear an Opera voice

That would be my second choice

I’ll bring my fan in case I’m hot

No leave it home on second thought

Quiet my stomach and stop your yelping

Oh to indulge in a second helping

Back and forth I rapidly pace

I may end up in second place


I’ll calm myself with a little humming

You’d think he was the second coming

My heart is giddy with romance

And eager for a second chance

He makes my pulse stop on a dime

I’ll touch his hand a second time

His thoughts and plans are always great

For he does nothing second rate

The clock on the wall is right I reckon

So he’ll be here in any second!

  2. I really like this – sometimes repetition in poetry feels very forced or gimmicky, but you managed to work it in very fluidly and organically. Very nice!
