End of April Couplets 2022

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.


End of April Couplets 2022

This April brought a record spring snowfall

to share the notes of Nightingale's call

I say this life is but a written page

of us trying to earn a living wage

to take some tome from busy day to read

a breath, sufficient money for our need

to witness as I spread my wings and fly

release to air a whimper and a cry

to understand these feelings that I share

a passion to create a world that's fair

only lost echoes of my lonely rants

this is my plea I have only one chance

will heat my morning as I start to run

the weight of grief rides upon shoulder's ton

my poetry seen once then out of sight

the only training I have for this fight

through work and trying to eat healthy foods

and find a routine to tame all my moods

to realize this path is as I feared

and every obstacle in road is never cleared

early morning birds begin to sing

as morning bells in mind begin to ring.
