Happy Halloween, readers!
Things have been pretty busy for me here, what with me wrapping up my latest project, Dream Roamers: Tyler’s Journey through the Kingdom of Somnia. My sincere apologies, then, to anyone who was looking forward to something a bit more festive for this week’s “Poem of the Week.” Luckily, though, I’ve nonetheless been able to whip up a little something quick, short, simple, and sweet for all of you all the same. Without further ado, then, here’s my latest Shakespearean sonnet, Tastes Can Change.
Tastes Can Change
October 22, 2013
“One person’s trash is another’s treasure.”
Such is how the saying is paraphrased.
What gives you pain may bring others pleasure,
So don’t be so quick to be so amazed
When somebody likes something you despise,
For folks’ tastes differ in more ways than you
Could ever know, so open up your eyes
And your ears to witness what’s before you.
Then, as you observe, open up your mind,
And perhaps you’ll learn to appreciate
That in question and perchance leave behind
Ev’ry reason for your previous hate
T’wards that which you once found despicable.
After all, tastes can change, and that’s no bull.
Well, that should do it for this week. Thank you all again for stopping by, and by all means, folks, feel free to leave your feedback to this poem (and to my work in general) in the comments section below. Also, feel free to visit my author pages at Smashwords.com, Amazon.com, and Amazon.co.uk, should you be in the mood to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Aside from that, though, my apologies again for not getting everyone into the holiday spirit this year, but all the same, happy reading!
