2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 01

For today’s prompt, write a new arrival poem. The new arrival could be a baby or a person. The new arrival might be a car or other piece of technology. Heck, the new arrival might be an idea or poem.

When morning arrived,

I was there when she awoke.

Here is your robe malady.

Here are your slippers.


When breakfast was served.

I was there when she ate,

Here are your eggs malady.

Here is your juice.


When the early meeting arrived,

I was there by her side.

Here is your high court malady.

Here are your notes.


When lunch was served,

I was there with her food.

Here are your sandwiches malady.

Here is your tea.


When it was time for her declamation,

I was with her on the terrace.

Here is your speech malady.

Here are your people.


When the crowd’s exultation rose,

I was there to see her satisfaction.

Here is a tissue malady.

Here is another.


When dinner was ready,

I was there to serve her meal.

Here is your soup malady.

Here is your wine.


When nightfall arrived,

I was there to settle her in.

Here is your pillow malady.

Here are your covers.


When it was time for me to retire,

I was in my quarters, sad and alone.

Where is my purpose?

Where is my joy?


When morning arrived again,

I was there as she awoke again.

Here is my purpose.

Here is my joy.


When the day arrives and ends,

I am there by her side.

This is my purpose.

This is my joy.
