    Transition Too long and quickly have I lived to vow The woe that stretches me shall never wane, Too often seen the end of endless pain To swear that peace no more shall cool my brow. I know, I know- again the shriveled bough Will burgeon sweetly in the gentle rain, And these hard lands be quivering with grain- I tell you only: it is Winter now. What if I know, before the Summer goes Where dwelt this bitter frenzy shall be rest? What is it now, that June shall surely bring New promise, with the swallow and Transition Too long and quickly have I lived to vow The woe that stretches me shall never wane, Too often seen the end of endless pain To swear that peace no more shall cool my brow. I know, I know- again the shriveled bough Will burgeon sweetly in the gentle rain, And these hard lands be quivering with grain- I tell you only: it is Winter now. What if I know, before the Summer goes Where dwelt this bitter frenzy shall be rest? What is it now, that June shall surely bring New promise, with the swallow and the rose? My heart is water, that I first must breast The terrible, slow loveliness of Spring. Jan 05, 19

    my land is bare of chattering folk the clouds are low along the ridges and sweet's the air with curly smoke from all my burning bridges

    Dotty is definitely being shelved as my go-to poet for relationships gone wrong then given a quippy, 180 one-liner. This had the most literary references in the poems, and I hate when they do that. I know you're intelligent and have read a lot, you don't need to impress me with it. It's just boring and I have to do all the leg work to try and figure out what your referencing. This, it gets my goat.

    A frolic, mostly. And a good one. Wit to burn.

    She is a clever writer. A bit sassy(satirical) and a down-to earth-romantic, it's plain rhyming verse of an older kind. I'm really terrible at writing reviews... so I'll add some examples (here I give you two very short ones, but there are longer ones, series, more serious ones too.. sadder ones.)

    Wry and slightly acerbic, as promised. Only about half as dreary as expected (I don't recall any poems dealing directly with taxes). Death is front-and-center, though, funny and bittersweet by turns. Worth the quick read.
