Frank Poems: NEW SONNET

"Et in Arcadia Ego," Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino), 1618–1622

New face new smile new hair new youth new you
New life new light new moon new dawn new day
New sound new smell new taste new vim new view
New faith new hope new plan new world new way
New white new red new blue new green new grey
New dress new shoes new ring new hat new her
New name new prize new stunt new found new fame
New film new art new game new song new star
New love new home new dog new cat new car
New coat new shirt new tie new hit new him
New them new folk new friends etcetera.
So when the sun shines bright on everything
It’s easy to forget, in Arcady,
With her, him, them and you, there’s also… me.
