2019 Day 12 (b) – If Tomorrow

If tomorrow I should lose this tongue
The words will echo in my head
And I will hear the songs unsung.
If tomorrow I should lose this tongue
I know the bell can still be rung.
After all is done and said,
If tomorrow I should lose this tongue
The words will echo in my head.

 

Notes “Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem about a dull thing that you own, and why (and how) you love it. Alternatively, what would it mean to you to give away or destroy a significant object?”  Literally and metaphorically. The form is a triolet.
