Quadrille #94: Roar

The first poem is my entry of 44 words:

The Roar of the World 

When the roar of the world for you is just deafening 

And you cannot think of a place that you’d rather be 

Then find some solace, more peace, and pure comfort 

In the arms of a loved one is where you would find me.

This second poem is the first one I wrote but with too many words for this challenge!

The Roar of the World

If the roar of the crowd is too loud  
 
And the peep of a mouse much too soft,  
 
Maybe you just need to be  
 
In bed up in a warm loft.  
 
When the roar of silence is deafening  
 
And the breeze that blows is too strong  
 
Maybe you just need to be  
 
In bed with a blanket and song.  
 
When the roar of the world is just perfect  
 
And there’s no place that you’d rather be  
 
Then get out of bed just this moment  
 
For there’s no profit for the lazy.

  1. I appreciate your problem reducing a poem to 44 words. The quadrille always leaves me with the feeling of so much unsaid!! Both poems are good writes.
