The Tone

Standard

 

This is the tone

That permeates

My wake of walking

In a life that does not fit

Too baggy at the seams

The drape of it

With sleeve too wide

The rib at wrist

Too thin I do believe

I knit it foolishly myself

Mistakes not few and due

To me or did

The stitches done be cast

By histories of patterning

Set fast before

By circumstance

Does chance encounter

Much in awe the tone

That permeates

My wake of walking

Makes its presence felt

To fit
