Recovery Begins

 (Sans Limerick)

.

.

Oh how my heart beats sing!

As she’s home recovering,

From the trauma

And the drama,

The ordeal’s suffering.

.
There is no place like home,

And she won’t be alone.

She recovers,

Hubby hovers,

So that she may stay prone.

.
Together we’ll succeed,

As the doctor’s decreed.

Fully embrace,

Challenge we face,

Where healing is our need.

.
No obstacle’s too tall,

No issues are too small,

That we can’t meet,

Or can’t defeat,

Together through it all.

.

Author Notes Brought my wife, Karen, home from the hospital today. So far, things are going well. After her back surgery, she’ll be on bed rest and crutches for 3 weeks. 3 months for full recovery.
This is San Limerick. “Sans” meaning near or similar t

o. It has 5 lines per stanza and a rhyme scheme of aabba, like a Limerick, but the meter is much shorter. Instead of a typical meter of 9/9/6/6/9, this poem has much shorter meter of 6/6/4/4/6.
