IN A DAY LIKE TODAY (Sonnet)
~In A Day Like Today~
For winter, kind of cool here, yes, it was
Very nice today, completed quite some, a bit
Then just relaxed, reflected 'long, did sit
After many chores I've done, took a pause
Read in 1927 Dr.Seuss marri'd Helen Palmer
In 1927, King Tut's tomb was discovered too
Many events in a day like today
Befell.Some good, some bad, catchy scar or star.
Turn off TV.Only depressing, joyless shows
Today, writing here another new sonnet
Now, again, for a third day in a row
Mulling over, just surfing round the net.
In 1877,Edison his crank'd phonograph play'd
In 1981, famed, actress Natalie Wood died.
