Blue Forget-me-nots


The words so familiar
leave me feeling confused
the song sparks memories
but of someone i dont remember
the faces i am supposed to know
dont register
who are you?
where am i?
soothing voices wash over me
'Nan you're in your bed'
Whos Nan?
Go away i dont want you here
Blue forget-me-nots
flower outside the window

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
