I was a bit nervous
From the note I received
A whirling dervish
Of a message indeed.
“Home from the hospital” was all it said
What kind of news is this I read?
What happened, and when? I wrote back.
The news from home usually quite lax
But this concerned a relative dear
My concern was developing into fear
Their reply, quite simply conceived
Was good news, and I was relieved.
Health issues with your elders involved
Needs to be sent quickly and resolved.
