My Monday Metrical Musings #114

man standing between stairway on pathway

Sonnet: One step at a time

Every mountain is climbed
One step at a time
Every ladder rung mounted
One foot over the other

That’s what I was told
A thousand years ago
Yet this new year I’m still
At the bottom of the hill

So what’s a man to do
At the bottom of a hill
But pick himself up
Dust himself off

And begin again to climb
One step at a time.
