Tell Me of Your Anger in Whispers (Keats Sonnet)
Should you be moved to speak in anger dear
I ask that first you test your words alone.
If meaning’s very clear, then is it fair?
You’ll want to be assured your meaning’s clear.
If anger stems from blunder of my own
You know I’ll fix it and will be contrite.
Are these first words intended to repair?
Harsh words once thrown will travel like a spear.
A mild re-buff will move one to atone.
No anger’s due because you know I care,
and mistakes are things that can be put right.
A shared talk always resolves a dispute.
So whisper concerns to your love, tonight
And by the way darling, I think you’re cute.
