Again - Poem by Nicky McNeil

I will still try to catch the sunrise
Try to catch more jars of fireflies
Roll down hills in the wet grass
Get sentimental at Christmas

I will still fish in the twilight
Sit and listen to blues at midnight
Skip smooth rocks at the lake
Fall in love for loves sake.

Smile at babies playing in the park
Look for passions special spark
Make some angels in the snow
Listen to old folks tales of long ago

Make love engulfed in the moonshine
Sit up late and drink apple wine
Eat greasy chicken off paper plates
Ride in my car and ponder my fate.

Oh yes, I will fall blindly in love again,
Even deeper and better than it’s ever been.
I will do these and all things I love to do
The only question remains, will it be me and you?

    Pretty decent lines, Nicky. I like the couplets. They fit with the feeling I think you were trying to convey. Very nice. (Report) Reply
