She puts me on in every season
Regardless of time, place, or location
In the rain, the sleet, and the snow
Apparently I’m some sturdy husband material
A Man For All Seasons (In Fashion)
She puts me on in every season
Love this! “Sturdy husband material.”
Thanks a million or more!
Bravo. Carry her over rye threshold after you wed. Can just imagine you with your bride in your arms. Mama Mia a sight to behold.
That would be something to think about. Perhaps one day that might come true. In my dreams it already has. Thanks as always!
Dreams always come true. So dream away.
You as well! 🙂
This made me smile. A man like this is definitely in fashion.
That’s very cool. Thanks for letting me know. And I agree; it’s nice to be able to find someone who can weather an occasional storm. Because eventually it does always rain.
It always does, you’re right. To have someone like that would be lovely!
Well, well, this is what we have been waiting for!
Smart girl! Benjamin, don’t waste time!
Thanks for all you said. Sorry for the late reply. Hope you’re doing amazingly well!
Loving your brief yet poetically loaded love/philo-capsules :)))!
Thanks so much. That’s really cool. Love/philo-capsules! 🙂 Adoring that phrase!
I adore this!!!! 😄 Its “you can leave your hat on”-ness gives me an utter feeling of joy and delight. She will be lucky… and we in spirit can cheer you on… as long as you keep sharing your wonderful poetry. 😁🙏👯♂️👯♀️🎉
That’s an exciting comment! Glad to hear this all. Thanks for supporting and motivating me further! 🙂
Nice one, Benjamin. I love how you can capture such power and meaning and just a few short lines. Well done 🖤🖤
Big thanks. Always means a lot when you chime in here. Thank you, thank you, thank you! 🙂
Aww of course!!! 🖤
Oh My God! This is just perfect!
Thanks so much, my friend!
This is outstanding! It is something I will always remember.
Oh wow! That’s high praise. And I greatly appreciate it and your opinion. 🙂
Haha! This is berries Ben 👏👏👏
Oh … I was hoping you might say so 🙂 Thanks majorly!
Beautiful, especially the “sturdy husband” part. 🙂
I kindly thank you! 🙂
This is cool. The above comments have them all written. Yes some ‘sturdy husband material’ and wearing a man like seasons. Amazing thought.
Thanks completely, Kritika. You gave me another reason to smile today!
Glad my words made you smile. 🙂 Welcome.
Happy Day Benjamin !
The poem was nice, but I’d rather not objectify any human being, whether male or female or non-binary, even as a joke.
Lovely, little poem!
That makes sense. Something to think about, for sure! I’m glad you brought this up. It’s good to have other perspectives. Thanks for adding your thoughts to the conversation. Really appreciate it!
You’re very welcome. :)))
Benjamin, it’s 04:30PM here and I can’t seem to grasp your words, but then I think that perhaps my brain is tired and lazy. it is not even trying, lol.
I’ll try to rephrase it: She likes to have me around her all year round, regardless of where or what she is doing, and what is going on around her, because I’m worth it to her and I don’t wear out my welcome. But abstractly it’s a play on the phrase of husband material, and I tried to metaphorically state how she wears me in every season and situation because I’m so sturdy like someone’s favorite fashion piece. And then, it’s also a play on how a song might be made. Most revolve around taking a cliche phrase and twisting it somehow. Thanks, as always, for reading and leaving your thoughts.
Ah! well, this helps a lot. So, she wears you all seasons long not because she loves you but because you are accessible to her? I guess I interpreted the word “wear” two ways: one, she wears you because she loves you and is proud to show you off, but my second “wear” is she wears you down. She is oblivious to your exhaustion because to her, you are sturdy, and again, accessible.
Well, that’s an interesting reading. Yeah, it can make you wonder: Is it love or accessibility? It makes sense to me how you interpreted this. It could totally have a double meaning to it like you said. One way is positive and other is negative. That’s the cool thing about art, so many ways to see something. Amazing to read your reading of this. I agree with it all, but maybe others can see something else in there also. I guess it is both positive and negative thing. Great thoughts by you. You went beyond the words and found a deeper meaning! The start of a great essayist!
Well said about art, and the many interpretation of the same piece makes absolute sense. It is why I enjoy reading people’s responses who have a different perspective from what your original thought was. It makes you go, “ah! I see that.” Thank you, Benjamin!
Thank you! I, too, like the different ways of viewing something. Your first look isn’t always the best one. It’s awesome to have layers so you can keep coming back to writing and finding new things. Thanks again.
“Layers” is a good way to put it. 🙂
Delightful, Benjamin! Deep and yet playful, those clever lines made me smile 🙂
Thank you, Chris! Glad you got a smile out of this one!
Lovely humor you got, loved it
Thanks so much!
