dear guest

 

don’t be upset by
my russet setter
on the side porch;
step over him and

please, have a seat
on my satin settee
here we’ll have tea,
chat, recite verset till

supper; then play
games after sunset
until we settle into
long moonset night.

    I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get to your set quadrille. I love “moonset.” You definitely used “set”–nicely done.

    I like the description of the night as “moonset”.
