An Ode To Miss Siregar (Special Birthday Poem)

Send my love to father time
Who robbed my youth
That apparent sleuth
Oh yes, he holds a mighty crime
And here I am still in denial

God I still want to be twenty-two
Pushing back a few moons will do
But what to do I'm feeling blue
I'll pass the time playing Buckaroo

I know a girl who learned to fly
Who then took off
The scheming fox
At her return I'm bound to bite
For she and I are so alike

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
