A Very Meta Quadrille

In a time crunch
such as happens many days

I’m a little Quadrille
and I’m here to say

There’s always time for me
I’m only forty-four words

You can read me
quick as a hummingbird

You can write me
though I may sound absurd

I’m swamped at work today, but didn’t want to miss another Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub. Head on over and check out some of the other forty-four word poems that include the word crunch.

    Nice sound and good description of what a good quadrille (at least by my taste) should be.
