42 Day Fifteen, Why.

Jane Dougherty has come up with a theme for May . It is 42, now Jane describes it thus: “42 after Douglas Adams’ answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. The form is like the Cherita in its structure with a bit of added interest. The first line/stanza asks a question or makes a statement that begs a question, the second stanza/two lines sets the scene or the background, the last stanza/three lines answers the question or resolves it in some way.

Why must we grow up

Our innocence to loose

As our paths we choose

All good things come to an end

Childhood is but temporary my friend.

It is a bitter cup.

        Seeing the end of life does bring you up short. I canโ€™t imagine being that age and knowing that logically youโ€™re on borrowed time and any morning you might just not wake up.

    But if one lives long enough, the childlike attitude returns? Why not!
