A Poetic Meandering

Maundering musings: mainly meaning more metaphorical meanderings

Sad, indeed,
Is a bird without wing,
Yet poems these days
Are replete
With such things.

Using metaphor, simile,
And comparative urge,
This sort of rhyme
Replaces the dirge.

But hark!
Whilst dirges have merit
in celebrating the deceased,
From these lugubrious maunderings,
Is there escape or release?

Since gloomy, indeed,
Might seem this poem's end,
Let's conjure it now -
Raise a glass high!
And to glad tidings portend.
