Jessica - Poem by Jeff Thompson

First day of practice, I was looking around
Sat there taking in all the faces, didn't make a sound
That's when my eyes froze and my brain as well
There she sat, unbelievable beauty, I was under her spell
Long, smooth, brown hair that shined in the light
Eyes deep, yet radiant, there is no adequate description, try as I might
Lips perfectly formed and without lipstick for there was no need
My eyes grew wide and my jaw did drop, I must concede
I would not even try talk to her, no never
After all, she wouldn't notice me, not ever
And if she were in front of me my brain would stall
I wouldn't be able to think, much less say a word at all
I snapped out of my thoughts as the late people took a seat
Then the band director gave a short speech before giving the first downbeat.
