Ode to a Button Lost

by Deborah L. Brewer

Oh, button iridescent,

Sweetest pearl of milky white,

Freed from m’ lady’s “precious” sweater

In the middle of the night.

Our dalliance was jolly

As we frisked about the house,

Until you hid between the floorboards

Like a timid little mouse.

Your snub has left me sullen;

My lady is fuming sore.

You have departed, dearest button,

Lost to me forevermore.

This poem was first published in my PPW blog, "Waxing Poetic," on May 4th, 2022.
