Democritus junior – Jilly’s July challenge!

Jilly is hosting July challenge in which two poets write two parts of poem to complete it. I finished the quadrille wrote by Charlie which is in bold. Mine are italicized.

The bird broke

my concentration

when he pecked

the door.
“Anatomy of Melancholy”

from my fingers fell.
Closed, it hit the floor.


And my  mind quake,

I took it’s wing,

Broke out to fly.

Leaving the gloomy room

And the gloom book

      1. You, sir, are a scholar… nay, an intellectual! I’ve been accused of being one myself. I gladly lay that heavy mantle on your shoulders and now will go skipping off carefree across a field of daisies!

      2. Haha! It’s indeed a heavy mantle. Now my watch begins, I’ll wander here to find someone suitable to pass on that mantle so look out for me in the field in a few days!
