Tell Me of Your Anger in Whispers (Four Kings Sonnet)

A silence is most fine thing when irate.
Emotions can cause phrases to excite.
We want to solve a problem, not to fight.
It’s wise of you my dear, therefore, to wait,
re-think the message goal and contemplate
for calm approaches help make troubles slight.
If I have blundered then I’ll be contrite.
With cause to pause and think, I shall relate.

Avoid harsh words almost assured to grate,
I’ll want to help resolve most any plight.
Now here’s the perfect way to do this right.
To help achieve a problem solving state
remember dear, I am your loving mate.
My love, use whispers closely late tonight.
