Colour Blind


If you shoud reminise,
Think back to the good old days
When we were kids
Laughter rang out through out the day
Changing your moods from night until day

Time has changed my greatest dream
To play again on meadows green
Pretending im happy when im so blue
Is something that id rather not do

Now all of my thoughts have gone colour blind
Children are coloured the darkest green
Laughter is shut off with in me now
Age has made me so colour blind

so blind now
so blind now
so so so blind now, i cant see

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
