The Old Man's Tale - Poem by Phil Soar

I cast aside my feelings for a moment
And listened to the tale the old man read
And for a while it took me on a journey
Describing as it did, the life he led

His travels and adventures had me spellbound
He let his flow of words paint many sights
Of many loves and losses, on the rebound
And the reasons he spent long and lonely nights

But his stories had such meaning and expression
That my mind had entered his endearing world
And hearing things explained in such a fashion
They broke your heart as each tale had unfurled

The many seasons he set out before me
With depth and deepness stretching every line
Has made me thinK I ought to tell a story
I wonder who'd be interested in mine?

    I would be interested in your story, as your poem was highly interesting.
    You have one little misprint you probably want to change.
    On live fifteen I'm sure you meant THINK instead of THING.
