Random Poem:

The Miss ubiquitous

She's seemingly ubiquitous and everywhere  
a brunette high flyer  
annunciating her cares    
to some star struck passenger  
both leaving London Victoria,  
decidedly a burgeoning novelist  
with a Literary Agent in New York  
lecturing to students  
almost half her age  
in the concourse of literature.  
Coming from Colorado  
did you know you can ski in your shorts ?  
or have 300 days of sunshine guaranteed  
she boons this like a tourist official,  
and to our interpretative Brits  
her riposte will always  be
"its no longer John Denver circa 74".  
And now to Historic Europa  
she acclimatizes herself to the subject of weather  
to culturally highlight her intended floral dresses  
for a summer recorded in  
places, Florence,  Berlin and Prague  
but  time permitting avoiding  
and how I would have  
loved to share this your second Youth  
with thou so passably
