Sisyphus winks...

Like a fatherless wind, 

A forlorn zephyr,

Graceless before 

The grains of sand,

Faithless when forced 

To take a stand;

A miser, counting favours

Instead of stars,

Wilting now with 

All that arrogant

Fragility of a daffodil, 

And all the while

Sisyphus winks, 

Ever so grateful 

For your fellowship...

The title about the Greek legend had grabbed my attention even before I could read the poem, and the poem turned out to be brilliant as always, Holden.🌷
