SOLEMNITY

Sometimes I gaze
wonder and wait
for clarity in the revelation
of how easily solemnity fades-

it starts first with vivid sobriety
a hard face one puts
even if he likes to beam-

and goes on to scold
seriously,and he really is cold
hard to talk to,tough to get to

but as time goes by
the sobriety fades
the solemnity despaires
and the atmosphere is calm

it has always been
to my knowledge
that there is one thing
that can never prevail
so long,as God’s word,
it can’t:solemnity
