Weekend Sonnet

This weekend’s evaporating

In relaxation’s warm bright light

This is sloth invigorating

Battling work with all it’s might

The students’ papers need grading

The apartment should be cleaned up

But down-time I’ll not be trading

For my students’ ego wallop 

I’m relaxing on this warm beach

Of dreams, eating & family

Work kept safely out of my reach

A weekend wasted cannily

So when Monday ambushes me

I’ll look back & remember peace
