End of April Couplets (2018)

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

When thinking about how a month should end,

An argument on Nature to defend,


I ponder Kunitz, his “Benediction,”

on display his couplet dedication,


where the poet sends wishes through prayer

to keep away the sin of naysayer.


For reader to avoid all things evil,

for God to keep them from the world's Devil.


He asked for those who weep to have a chance

to heal the scars from a bad circumstance,


he ends the couplets with a plea for love,

the only thing we should have a lot of.


When thinking about how a month should end,

an argument on Nature to defend,


I ponder Kunitz, his "Benediction,"

on display his couplet dedication,


I realize I want to pray for you,

to wish you reader, love and safety too.
