October Night - Poem by Linda Ori
I was a youngster - a girl in my teens,
He was captain of the school football team -
The month of October, full moon shining bright,
An old fashioned hayride on a Saturday night;
Parked his Chevy in the drive and walked up to my door
I thought I would faint dead away on the floor,
How was I so lucky to capture his eye?
This larger than life, most incredible guy.
We dressed in team jerseys smuggled out of the gym,
I looked like a miniature reflection of him,
The night air was crisp -our breath hung in the air,
The frost bit my fingers, but I didn't care
Caught up in the moment with the guy of my dreams
Autumn Perfection in still frame......It seems
Like just yesterday that long ago night
A memory so precious, and my world so right -
This blast from the past brought to life once again
By an e-mail surprise...........birthday wishes from HIM! ! !
