October 28: Observation

As families dependent on a member
Whose work, at any time, may call them in,
Regardless of the time and day remember
It’s not the date; it’s what’s observed therein.

An anniversary may see delay
Until it can be nicely celebrated
And any gift, regardless of the day,
Will be enjoyed and much anticipated.

Observances are simply that: observed
At times in which they’re deemed to be convenient.
Provided that the spirit is preserved,
Do not condemn the letter, but be lenient.

I celebrate three hundred sonnets done,
Observing it in sonnet three-oh-one.
