A Walk at Rockaway Beach with My Hound Millie Naturally

How fortunate am I!

As I traversed to and fro

My sagacious hound Milly alongside me

At my beck and call

Transversing along the sunny Rockaway Beach shoreline

My! Oh! My!

What did I find!
Bounding above the waves

A school of jet black dolphins!

Merrily bobbing their dorsal fins up and down!

By the bye!

I can attest from yonder beach sands

None wore frowns!

After a brief repose

My staunch steadfast pooch

Savoring the coolest shadows

On the steps of a quaint neighborhood church

I felt a lurch?

A hunch!

Nay! A fervent need!

To read!

A sumptuous tome

The Intellectualist’s Gourmet

As I approached the library

To mine self be true

I softly intimately queried

Will their be a rich set of printed works

Make its presence known

To literally make my day?

Or a bunch of mis-mash

Literary scaliwags!

From the lower end theory

Well whattaya know!

It should have come adorned with a big red bow!

A fascinatingly new book on science and Edgar Allan Poe!

Despite the most terrible Long Covid headaches!

The syndromes rabid inner aspiration to aversion to the slightest of sound

Light and heat sensitivity!

Nervous systemic chronic problems and all!

I gently hath realized in full

Twas this the day my fortunes are turning!
Smiling widely!

Convinced of the fruits

Bared wholly on my epic journey

I walked out into the fresh air

My thoughts at once

Becoming supernaturally clear

I entered wistfully on my new healing path

Savoring the blue skies and green grass!

And closed the frightening past

With its torturous and painful path

With the subtle closing

Assisted via gravity!

Of the library door

I hath entered the palliative path

That will lead me to subsequent holistic and profound sunny shores
