Name of the Game

Name of the Game
Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 14
Theme: Love
Subject: Games

With counters chasing up the ladder stairs
Only to stumble down to a snake’s tail
Outside the rain falls with us unawares
Too busy laughing again down I go
And you hit the top square winning the game
It’s just luck of the dice but still you crow
All bets off, let’s play cards, poker by name
And my eyes blankly observing your airs
The giveaway signs remain just the same
For in love and play this wily old male
Can read you, darling, like an open book
On the turn of cards you let it all show
My teasing wagers simply bait the hook
Then I call it, and you know I will look
