Stanley Cooper

Rookie - 20 Points (August 4th,1926 / New York City)

For Just One Moment


For just that one Moment
I was what I used to be
Playfully perched on my father's knee

I was there, way back when
With my dad who, for me
Dwarfed all other men

I wasn't all grown
All alone
Facing the world on my own

For just that one moment, I yearn
Just that one moment
Will it never return?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
