draft – preliminary version
draught – gust of wind; a depth of water needed to float a ship
Our second set of homophones is:
find – locate something
fined – to have to pay a penalty
On a cold wet winters night
There is no escaping the draught
It slips in under the door
Wraps itself around us all.
With work to be done
A draft is secured
Rough around the edges for sure.
But a start and that is that.
It had to be done to avoid the fine
To be fined for tardiness just wouldn’t do
After all there was reputation to maintain
Most people thought it came so easy.
In the recesses of my mind
Was the ideal place to find
The words to complete the draft
Letting me think of things other than the freezing draught.
