Knock On Wood


If through space and time
It was known that I was to be yours and you were to be mine
There wouldn’t be a reason for a time machine
Knock on wood, knock on wood
If written in the stars was your name across from mine
I wouldn’t dream of an eraser big enough to make it not so
Knock on wood, knock on wood
If luck had anything to do with us falling in love
I would find myself a rabbit’s foot, a leprechaun’s pot of gold
And hold on to them until the end of times
Knock on wood, knock on wood
If in the desert like Aladdin
I found myself an old lamp and a genie inside
I would wish for you more than one time
Because truthfully, one of you is just not enough
Knock on wood, knock on wood
And if it only took a poem for you to notice this silly old me
Then I would write you a thousand more romantic ones
Just so you would know that you one hell of an inspiration
Knock on wood, knock on wood, knock on wood.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
