Wednesday, word….

lively; animated; spirited

Vivacious is not me
No, not by a long shot
I am not unhappy
Not the least little bit
Well, maybe now and then
I’m not all that happy
But I get over it
As quickly as I can
I like observing life
In a light-hearted way
Laughter is good for us
It keeps us young at heart
But being vivacious
Is not like me at all
And that is quite okay

  1. How did I miss it since, vivacious is one of my all time favorite words. The moment you hear it, your mind is off to the races.

    Vivacity is a favorite Jane Austen word where I probably read it first. I remember Mr. Collins in Pride and Prejudice after unsuccessfully trying to woo Lizzy cooed about her vivacity, in that Victorian proper accent. Love that you chose its cousin. Thanks.

  2. I was vivacious when I was younger. Now, I am comfortable with being pleasant to be around. Being oneself is what matters.

    1. You are right…just being who we are is what matters. Unless one is mean and nasty…then there’s a need to get a grip and move on to at least nice.
