GRIEF ~ rough draft
by April Halprin Wayland

Lacy won’t bark.
James sits in the dark.
He feeds Lacy chicken and rice.

Lacy’s depressed.
James can’t get dressed.
The house feels icy and bare.

Lacy won’t eat.
James cannot sleep.
His heart’s being squeezed by a vise.

Lacy lies down.
James wants to skip town.
His pup, her companion’s not there.


The rhyme pattern of this poem is AAB, CCD, EEB, FFD.
