Let's Drink a Toast to Now

Rate this Entry




Yesterday it was a bud,
today a flower,
and what about tomorrow?

Aye!
Let's drink a toast to now
and get drunk!

When tomorrow comes,
A flower of yesterday will remain
as beautiful.

    I like this. Simple, almost elegant, but not quite. The ending is too humorous. I suggest posting this on the poetry forum.

    Thanks, Jersea, for the nice comment and advice!

    If you omit the last line and reword the piece a bit, does it still sound humorous?
