My Muse keeps me Musing

Amused I listen as he explains
The bumbling plays of the game
Each one blatant from his seat
Just before the clock runs out
NO defeat!
I muse in measured hushed repose
Spy no sweat from muddied brow
Do I judge from distant chairs

ddversepoets.comMonday quadrille. Exactly 44 words excluding the title. The word is muse.

444 words is too short. I recently learned the ASL sign for music and poetry is the same. For some reason that makes perfect sense to me. Two of my passions, music and poetry.
