gaudy medium pleasnt Poetry tempered

Mild ——— A Subdued Flame.

It is so soft and  nice

so simple and cool

so good and sober

not so hot but tempered

there enters the word “mild”

a silky word, I feel

looks so in  the tone

felt so even when not touched

“mild” does not provoke

nor does it ignite

for that matter not stimulate

never does it incite

maintains the tempo

keeps you going smooth

mild being the kindliest word

the mild weather is comfortable

the mild temper soothes

the colour mild pleases

the voice mellowed in mildness

exuberates and enhances

the mild an antithesis of  ferocious

an opposite of anger

a contrast of gaudy

contrary to arguments

a flexible, gentle nature in all

could be acclaimed as “mild”

the word bears the torch

glows with a subdued flame

yet spreads light all over.
