Wednesday

Wednesday is such an elegant and refined word
with a regal d followed by a soothing n.
So serious and stout, yet elegant and refined.
Transparent, yet bold and playfully midweek.
Wednesday, also known as "hump day."
Wednesday also being the name of a woman whose
parents know the playful solidity of the day
and how delightful those qualities are in a woman's
name or character. Wednesday is the link
between early week and midweek. Wednesday
is not a holy day or holiday but more of a working
day, a point in the middle of the week when the sleeves
are rolled up and unfinished work from early
in the week with days that have dreaded names like
"Monday" or "Tuesday" is finished up.
Wednesday nudges us to conclusions,
leads us to tempered resolutions.
It is a day of mild atonement, a day of gentle reconciliation
between early and late week.
It is a day that unfolds gracefully,
a day we are usually glad to see.
So stalwart and sweet, Wednesday is reality
tempered with perfection.
Oh, Wednesday, thank you for getting here.
