The Lost Sail: A Cape Cod Diary

Excerpt

Six summers ago, I crossed the gray Atlantic.
Climbing the Italian Alps, I fell in love
With ultramarine Maggiore, madly romantic.
But the Muse put on so stern a look I strove
For a fitting union with the Ding-an-sich.
Her grim symmetrical task destroyed my leisure:
Never a moment did I spend with ich--
Never before had I had a sonnet seizure !

Six summers later, on lazy green Cape Cod,
Just as I'd planned to steal a real vacation,
Here am I thrown once more into cold hard quod
By the ever faithful cause of my damnation.
Playing the Pilgrim lass, she sports a bonnet.
Though I'd sworn I'd never start another sonnet !
