Empty Nest Sonnet


By Helen StuartPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

This Section Eight apartment is my home

You know, it is my castle and my keep.

I'm always going barefoot and alone

So no one tells me when to go to sleep.

But wait, I share this with another soul

A dog, a small and fluffy precious pet

I only put the best food in her bowl

Her little nose is always cold and wet.

You raise your children right so they can fly

And when they go they leave an empty nest

You mustn't call them back from their bright sky

Just be there when they need a bit of rest.

Sometimes it does get a little lonely

I must please myself and myself only.
