a poem

once upon a poem
I fell in love with you
and in a breathless moment
my heart was filled with rhymes
of morning sun
sweet days of fun
soft evenings blessed
with church bell’s chimes

and now I hear you talking
to a friend as yet unknown
your voice is warm and laughing
ah yes I used to know him
and that cuts deep
as I recall
I fell in love with you
once upon a poem

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
