THINGS COME IN THREES

Three blind mice. . .
tic tac toe. . .

Things come in threes
roll off the tongue
with clever rhythm,
grace and ease,

though’s said
that three counts
up to crowd,
in issues touching
belles and beaux.

Ergo, seems I must think twice,
for choosing meetings,
if I hope to make them nice–
What number drawn
is best betimes
twixt words, twixts folks,
twixt hearts or flowers,
or proper repetitions
to best learn
and know’t by rote?. . .

Or pendulums
for some wind-swung,
ringing, wood or metal chimes,
making natural music at its best,
to far surpass our pens’ and tongues’
most brilliant
words or rhymes.
