Funny Moments - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

grassy fields full of frisbees
and dogs, mom and dad
sitting together on a bench
made for one.of baseballs
flying high in the air, and
dear old dad showing how
to catch a ball before it
hits my head.

    It's nice that you have some good memories.....I find I have forgotten too many of the few good ones and just remember the bad times. This is nice. Sincerely, Mary (Report)Reply
