First Eight Lines of a Sonnet
I sometimes feel like life is just preamble,
All As and Bs and As and Bs forever –
There’s building-up of tension for the scramble,
But no antithesis can slip the tether.

And get me underway in my endeavour ?
I long to find a volta, take a gamble,
But always must await a break in weather…
