MAGPIE...Prompt #165

 
                         MONHEGAN'S SCHOOLTEACHER/ 2004/ Jamie Wyeth


THANK YOU, Tess, at Magpie Tales...


LESSONS

I held close a towel,
tousled my hair,
let traces of love
drift like sap
down the drain.

You whispered
a bit of a Sonnet
that came to mind,
"Thou art now
the world's fresh ornament"...

Your fingers strummed my spine,
setting a place on my back.

I'll just pretend
I slept the night through,
not let a trickle of sweat
shine my brow,
as I teach the morning's lesson.

Ah, right off we can slip within her being. Quite refreshing and romantic, yet clearly her classmates were far from her thoughts this day.
