I caught the rhymes
of an ancient
Long ago song
on the snags of
my mind.

A simple melody
that goes round
and around
and around
my brain.

As historied

yet relevant
and fresh
as new
turned dirt
in the spring

I caught...or at
least I thought
I did...

Or was I caught

    Sounds like you were caught, instead, as the tune played in your head. What a fun write. Enjoyed very much Thomas.
