ELEGY: On the Irregular Verb


The poetry of language once
Began my love of words,
But poetry is giving way
To easiness in verbs.

I dedicate these simple lines
To those whose memories, like mine,
Allow for lit in lieu of lighted,
And shone instead of shined.

For we who strove instead of strived,
At least we’ve not been blessed with “drived”.
