Mark this day!
Mark this day.
Hang out the bunting
And launch a clatter of fireworks from the grassy earth
For its like may not be seen again.
Today I ran for a full twenty-eight minutes
I lapped the gleaming Serpentine
And came to rest in Albert’s gilded gaze
Beside the sun-turned crocuses.
Mark this day
Because life is short
And we must take our pleasures where we can.
