Five Free Verse Poems About Wednesdays

Wednesday Blues

Wednesdays, oh Wednesdays,

Dragging through the day,

Counting down the hours,

To the weekend far away.

Hump day they call it,

But for me, it’s a slump,

Feeling tired and weary,

Like I’m always in a funk.

But I’ll push through this Wednesday,

Because I know that I can,

And soon enough it’ll be over,

And Friday will come again.

Mid-Week Awakening

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

A day of new beginnings,

A chance to shake off the fatigue,

And start fresh with new winnings.

Half the week behind us,

Half left to go,

But Wednesday reminds us,

To take things nice and slow.

Stretch out your arms,

Take a deep breath in,

Focus on the present,

And let the day begin.

Wednesday Night Lights

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

A night to light up the town,

To leave work behind,

And let the good times come around.

It’s not quite the weekend,

But we’ll still celebrate,

With drinks, music, and laughter,

We’ll make our own fate.

So let’s forget about tomorrow,

And live in the now,

Because on Wednesday night,

Anything goes, somehow.

Anticipation of Weekend

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

The gateway to the end,

A day of anticipation,

For the freedom around the bend.

We’re halfway there,

To the weekend we crave,

And Wednesday reminds us,

That good things come to those who save.

So let’s look forward to Friday,

And all the fun it brings,

But until then, we’ll embrace,

The hope that Wednesday brings.

Wednesday Wonder

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

A day of endless possibility,

A chance to explore the world,

And discover something new and free.

Maybe it’s a book,

Or a walk in the park,

Or a conversation with a stranger,

That leaves a lasting mark.

On Wednesday, we can wonder,

And let our minds roam free,

Because who knows what we’ll find,

When we embrace our curiosity.

Mid-Week Struggle

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

Hump day, but it’s a struggle,

Pushing through the week.

A New Beginning

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

A fresh start in the middle,

Renewed energy.

The Calm of Wednesday

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

A calm amidst the chaos,

Stillness in motion.

Anticipating Friday

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

Two days left to wait for it,


The Beauty of Wednesdays

Wednesday, oh Wednesday,

Often overlooked and ignored,

But beauty remains.


Five Limerick Poems About Wednesdays

Wednesday Hump

Wednesday, oh Wednesday, the hump,

A day to push on and not slump,

The weekend is near,

So don’t shed a tear,

Just climb over that mid-week bump.

Wednesday Blues

Wednesday, oh Wednesday, so blue,

It’s hard to get up and pursue,

The work that’s ahead,

The tasks to be tread,

But soon the day will be through.

Wednesday Wisdom

Wednesday, oh Wednesday, so wise,

A day to open our eyes,

To learn something new,

To try something too,

And let our minds reach for the skies.

Wednesday Woes

Wednesday, oh Wednesday, such woes,

A feeling that nobody knows,

The drag of the day,

The fatigue that can stay,

But we’ll shake it off and strike a pose.

Wednesday Celebration

Wednesday, oh Wednesday, so fun,

A day to celebrate what we’ve done,

To raise up a glass,

To let loose and pass,

The time until the week is done.


Five Tanka Poems About Wednesdays

Midweek Blues

Wednesday arrives

A slump in the middle week

Longing for the end

Weekend freedom in my grasp

Till then, I trudge along slow

Coffee Break

Halfway through the week

I pause for a cup of joe


Energy to fuel my day

Wednesday coffee, my lifeline

Hump Day

Midweek milestone reached

The hump day is conquered now

The weekend in sight

Nauseating anticipation

Of the freedom I’ll enjoy

Wednesday Rain

Raindrops on my face

A midweek storm brews outside

Water droplets fall

A cozy refuge I find

Warm tea and Wednesdays indoors

Wednesday’s Child

Born on Wednesday’s day

Full of woe or full of grace

Astrological fate

Misfortune or good luck charms

Wednesday’s child, mystic charm.


Five Sonnet Poems About Wednesdays

Familiar Routines

Wednesday mornings come, as they have come,

Since time began its course, a steady beat

Of routine tasks that soon will be undone

And left in past times’ records incomplete.

The hours pass, yet nothing seems to change,

As Wednesday’s steady rhythm carries on-

A fact of life familiar, though strange,

A cycle that repeats from dusk till dawn.

And yet, a comfort lies within this day,

An anchor in the choppy seas of time,

A pause, before the week slips fast away,

A space to rest, reflect and to unwind.

Oh Wednesday, steady heart of the week’s span,

Your constancy supports us, to the end.

The Longing for Weekend

Midweek, and all we long for is the end,

For Friday, when the workday fades away,

For Saturday, when we will see our friends,

And Sunday, when we’ll rest and sleep all day.

The days drag on, and Wednesday feels like pain,

A limbo, where we’re stranded in the week.

Our dreams of freedom seem so far away,

And time is slow, and days are long and bleak.

Yet still, we know that Wednesday has its place,

A bridge between the start and the finish line,

A chance to catch our breath, to gather pace,

Before we face the rush of days to come.

So let us learn to love this middle day,

Embrace the moment, find a different way.

Wednesday’s Promise

Wednesday, with your promise in the air,

Of things yet to come, brighter days ahead,

A hint of hope that beckons us to dare,

To dream of things that haven’t yet been said.

The week is half-way through, and we are tired,

But something stirs within, a spark of light,

That whispers of adventure, still untired,

Of journeys that we’ll take, both day and night.

So let us seize this moment, make it ours,

And grasp the opportunity to be,

To chase our dreams, to climb the highest towers,

To live our lives with purpose, wild and free.

For Wednesday’s promise is a gift, divine,

A chance to shine, to rise, to climb and to climb.

The Beauty of Wednesdays

Wednesday, with your subtle grace and charm-

A day of beauty, oft-overlooked,

A gentle pause, a moment free from harm,

A chance to stop, to breathe, to take a look.

The world is busy, rushing to and fro,

But Wednesday lingers, slow and sweet and kind,

A time to savor, to enjoy, to grow,

To leave the stress and chaos far behind.

The flowers bloom, the birdsong fills the air,

The sun shines bright, the sky is blue and clear,

The beauty of the day is everywhere,

A joyous celebration of the year.

Oh Wednesday, how we love your gentle ways,

A respite from the rush of hectic days.

A Pause in Time

Oh Wednesday, you who stand at the mid-point

Of all the days that make up our life’s span,

A moment where we stop and take account,

And ponder what we’ve done, and what we’ve planned.

A pause in time, a space to catch our breath,

A chance to rest, to heal, to move ahead,

A moment where we face our fears, and yet,

A moment where we rise up, strong instead.

For Wednesday is a day of transformation,

A time to shed the old, embrace the new,

A chance to find our strength, our inspiration,

And turn our dreams into reality too.

So let us honor Wednesday, this midweek day,

A time to rest, reflect, and then to play.

What is an elegy

Five Elegy Poems About Wednesdays

1. The Echo of Midweek

In the quiet hum of Wednesday’s dawn,
A symphony of normalcy is born.
The world turns, in its infinite yawn,
Unaware of the sorrow that is worn.

The echo of midweek, a silent cry,
Halfway between past and future lies.
In this moment, under the morning sky,
We find life’s most poignant goodbyes.

By Dan Higgins, 2024

2. Wednesday’s Lament

Oh Wednesday, day of woe and wonder,
A bridge from bliss to blunder.
Your arrival brings both fear and joy,
A paradox we cannot avoid.

You stand as the week’s sorrowful crest,
A testament to life’s relentless test.
Yet within your somber, graying light,
Lies the promise of dawn, bright and white.

By Dan Higgins, 2024

3. The Midweek Mourning

Beneath the veil of Wednesday’s sun,
Lies the truth that all things come undone.
The laughter of Monday, the tears of Friday,
Merge into one in Wednesday’s sigh.

Yet in this mourning, there is a grace,
A gentle reminder of time and space.
For even in sorrow, life finds a way,
To move us forward, come what may.

By Dan Higgins, 2024

4. The Wednesday Wake

Wednesday, the day of silent grief,
Caught between relief and disbelief.
An elegy written in the sands of time,
A chorus of existence, neither yours nor mine.

You stand as a monument to the transient tide,
A beacon of hope, our trusted guide.
Through the sorrow, through the strife,
Wednesday, you echo the rhythm of life.

By Dan Higgins, 2024

5. The Wednesday Whisper

Oh Wednesday, with your mournful tone,
A solitary figure, standing alone.
You echo the sorrows of days gone by,
And the promise of tomorrows beneath the sky.

The Wednesday Whisper, a quiet refrain,
A melody born from joy and pain.
In your song, we find our way,
Through the darkness, into the light of day.

By Dan Higgins, 2024

Weaving through the hours, soft and low,
Echoes of the days, ebb and flow.

So we cherish the magic of our days.
