Sunday Whirl (Wordle #115) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
bird, bridge, unstable, wild, bend, rock,
retreat, bear, lane, fallen, meadow, island
No man is an island, entire of itself,
- John Donne
Shady lanes can skirt the meadow,
Flowers can dot the track;
Birds can flit from copse to copse,
The wind be at your back.
With bridges span the burbling brook
Or step from rock to rock,
We can sit upon a fallen branch,
Not bending to the clock.
Such are the beauties of the wild,
Of the warm and fragrant land,
Where we retreat and can absorb
The serenity, first hand.
That said, it can be a load to bear,
Unstable and pretend—
The joy is multiplied many-fold
When you share it with a friend.
