Dear legends, whose extreme munificence
And fine discernment know no earthly measure,
Today my gratitude is most intense,
For this PM, I had the untold pleasure
To pop into Unbound, the publisher
Of #Sonnets — wondrous tome, though small —
And sign some copies, making doubly sure
My name was legible, and not some scrawl
As might abash a schoolboy; aye, I’ve striven
To make it good, and with amusements rife,
And thus repay the gift you all have given
By helping bring such foolishness to life.
I hope the daft thing will your interest pique
When you receive it at some point next week.
